  • One of my favorite places to go to in Katoomba. Child friendly. Everyone seems friendly and welcoming especially the cafe staff. Great atmosphere. Beautiful library. Will continue coming here as long as it remains this wonderful friendly place.
  • Spacious, fresh, modern.
  • Fantastic, must visit facility of the Blue Mountains
  • While I love the cultural centre itself I'm not sure what has happened to the cafe? I ordered a Greek salad today. Not cheap at $16.00. I got a plate of rocket with hardly any feta, tomatoes or cucumber. Possibly 2 tiny pieces of tomato and 2 tiny cubes of cucumber. A tiny crumble of feta. A rip off at that price for what was essentially a plate of rocket. Won't be eating there again.
  • Entry library is like an architecture, very clean and good service. It's peace to read the books and comfort. Wi-Fi connect is 2 hours service.
