Mavis Bank and Blue Mt. Peak


Mavis Bank is a sleepy village nestled in a river valley in the shadow of Blue Mountain Peak. Its principal economic foundation for the past century has been the Mavis Bank Coffee Factory, which keeps many of the area's residents employed. The area is a good base for exploring the upper reaches of the Blue Mountains and for birding.

A few homey accommodation options around Mavis Bank offer visitors a chance to prepare in relative comfort for the trek up Blue Mountain Peak, which requires a somewhat grueling four-wheel-drive journey to the trailhead at Abbey Green, or alternatively, a two-hour hike.

To venture farther into the mountains, a four-wheel-drive vehicle is necessary. If you’re heading up to Blue Mountain Peak you can call Whitfield Hall (tel. 876/364-0722) for a vehicle to meet you at the constabulary, which is a good place to leave your two-wheel-drive car if you have one.
