Medlow Bath Blue Mountains New South Wales Australia

The small town of Medlow Bath is located 6 km west of Katoomba. Medlow Bath would hardly be worth mentioning if it wasn't for the gracious Hydro Majestic Hotel. Medlow Bath, set in beautiful scenic countryside also offers a number of walking trails, which offer great views of the cliffs of Narrow Neck and Megalong Valley.

Hydro Majestic Hotel

The story of the hotel ties in with Edward Hargraves who received a 10 000 pound reward for a gold discovery. Having noticed the beautiful views, he spent some of it on a property and house at Medlow Bath.

The railway arrived in 1880 and the station was initially called Brown's Siding.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Sydney businessman Mark Foy developed the Hydro Majestic as a 'hydropathic establishment', using therapeutic methods from Europe. The aspect of the hotel was not very successful so it continued on as an ordinary hotel.

The hotel's overwhelming presence, both physical and economic, led to a change of place name, with the railway station re-titled Medlow Bath, to honour the hotel and its hydropathic ambitions.

Today Medlow Bath is a settlement of around 500 people.
