Bellebrook Property Sign

BLACKHEATH, where this sign hangs, is the highest town in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. The whole surrounding area has some of the most spectacular views in the Blue Mountain range, looking out over the Grose Valley from breath-taking vantage points such as Evans Lookout and Govetts Leap (where it is said a bushranger named Govett rode his horse over the edge rather than be captured, though the story can’t be proved. Probably closer to the truth, ‘leap’ being a Scottish word meaning a waterfall, it was named after William Govett, an assistant to the surveyor general at that time.)

Here, you will have snow in winter, and even in summer the temperatures are relatively milder than in lower altitudes. Surrounded by what is now the Blue Mountains National Park, this region is thought to have originally been a summer corroboree meeting place for several Aboriginal peoples. It was given the European name of Blackheath by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1815, because, as he put it, “This place having a black wild appearance…” True to form, the first building in Blackheath was The Scotch Thistle Inn, built in 1831, and visited by Charles Darwin in 1836.

This is a favorite spot for canyon explorers, mountain bikers, hikers, kayakers and rock climber to name just a few. With glorious autumn colors, daffodils in spring, and year round rugged natural beauty, it isn’t surprising that so many visitors come here every year.

The beautifully sculpted gum nuts and leaves on this handcrafted sign fit in perfectly with this natural setting. The name is hand carved and painted, and the cove edge in matching subtle tone makes this a very classy house sign that will hang for years to come, welcoming everyone who comes to visit.
