Lennox Bridge in The Blue Mountains


Lennox Bridge on Mitchells Pass at Glenbrook is the oldest stone arch bridge on the Australian mainland. This elegant single span stone arch bridge was built in local stone and completed in 1833 by David Lennox using unskilled convict labour. It took one year to complete. The sandstone was quarried nearby and the bridge carried all the traffic to western New South Wales until 1926. An early engineering masterpiece.

Glenbrook Village


Glenbrook Village is a destination and attraction all in one as it combines natural locations with man made activities. A combination of modern man and ancient man, those of the original Australian aboriginals such as Red Hand cave and other markers and carvings.

Glenbrook Village is about one hour from the Sydney central business district, and one hour from Katoomba. It's a gateway to the Blue Mountains and World Heritage Listed National Park, with great swimming holes, and historic locations - explore and get to know where they come from.

The community contains artists, a bakery, bookstore, cafes and restaurants. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet still close to the hustle of Sydney.

Glenbrook Village is a special part of the world - come and experience it for yourself. There is nothing like mountain living!
