The Blue Mountains are buzzing with all sorts of activities at this festive time of year. With twilight markets, performances and art shows aplenty, there is something to suit everyone. And the train lovers are most certainly not due to miss out on the Christmas cheer this year.

Santa is paying a visit to the Valley Heights Locmomotive Depot Museum on both Decemebr 12th and 13th, and will arrive by steam tram!

Usually open on the 2nd and 4th Sunday each month, the Museum will be open from 10am-4pm both days.

Visitors will be welcome to roam the Depot and explore the historic Railway and Tramway exhibits - both large and small. Including model railway layouts and unlimited rides on the Steam Tram OR the 1890 Heritage Carriage train enthusiasts will love the opportunity to roam the stunning restorations including the famous "Caves Express" First Class carriage; the "Ice Van" and listen in on "Harry & Charlie" as they prepare steam loco 5461 for the day's work.

The jolly Santa will be visiting twice a day, arriving at 11am and 1:30pm. Bring your camera as Santa is most certainly not a shy fellow.

Staying at Bilpin Springs Lodge guests to the Blue Mountains get the seclusion and opportunity to 'escape from it all' but still have everything at their fingertips. Make a day trip of an early bird ticket to Scenic World, lunch at one of the many cafe's in Leura, and then down the Museum to meet Santa at 1:30pm. A light bushwalk could be fitted in before heading back to Bilpin and settling in for a night at the lodge with family and friends.
