Valley Heights is a small township of the City of Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. It is approximately 61km from Sydney and is located east of the township of Springwood. At the, Valley Heights had a population of 1,337 people.Valley Heights developed its own piece of the ridgeline that has been the main route west from Sydney since colonial history, and has some strong evidence of a rich pre-colonial inhabitance. At an elevation of 300 to 320 meters (980 - 1,050 ft) above sea level, the climate has been considered very conducive to a huge range of plants. The native ecological communities are fairly typical of other Hawkesbury sandstone with shale transition forests, yet exhibit the local specificness we have come to expect in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Current development is restricted by council reserves and National ParkValley Heights has a railway station, rail museum and the historic Gatekeepers cottage where the gatekeeper employed by the railway lived in the early steam era.Commercial areaValley Heights' commercial area centres on and north of the Great Western Highway, comprising light industrial and hardware retail services.Churches St Marks Anglican Church operated in Valley Heights for many years prior to closing in the late 1980s.
