It’s on again! The Blue Mountains Business Awards 2016 have just opened. This year there are a range of categories for local businesses to enter. Last year we were super thrilled to win one category, as well as be a finalist in the popular People’s Choice Award.
The Blue Mountains Business Awards are a fantastic way to recognise wonderful local businesses in the Blue Mountains. It is also a great way to take time out to analyse your business – your direction, what you do well, and what you can improve on, and your goals for the future.
Please vote for us!
Glen Isla is a very special place in the Blue Mountains. We hope that you agree! We would really appreciate your support by voting for us in the People’s Choice Award!
We are crossing our fingers to be finalists again this year! Thank you so much for all your support!
Blue Mountains Accommodation Availability
In other news, it has been a very busy few weeks at Glen Isla. Yulefest is by far the busiest time of the year in the Blue Mountains. We have lots of back to back bookings during the school holidays at this time of year so the whole team have been working hard to provide our guests with a wonderful experience.
Our dates from September 2016 onwards are also starting to book out so if you would like to book our beautiful self contained accommodation be sure to check our availability calendar and get in touch to secure your dates!
Does it snow in the Blue Mountains? This is a question we are often asked when guests book Glen Isla over the popular Winter season. The answer in short is YES! Sometimes. If you are very very lucky!
Last year in mid-July (2015) some of our guests arrived to be greeted by lots of snow all through our gardens.
What are the chances seeing snow in the Blue Mountains for our visit?
If you stay in the Winter with us – it’s definitely a possibility! In the 3 years that we’ve owned Glen Isla, we have had snow in 2 of those years. Once at the end of June (2016) and once in mid-July (2017).
If snow is what you’re looking for though, Wentworth Falls (where Glen Isla is located) isn’t the best place to go looking for it. This is mostly due to the elevation of Wentworth Falls where we are located. It does snow quite often higher up the Mountains – Mt Victoria and Blackheath see snow much more often due to their higher elevation. If snow is what you’re after, your best bet is to venture further during your stay with us and visit the township of Oberon – about one and half hours drive from Glen Isla.
Get booking for the remainder of 2016!
With our Winter dates almost completely filled (all our weekends are booked until mid-September, we have a few midweek dates available), our Christmas and New Years season is starting to book out. Be sure to get in touch to reserve your preferred dates! >> Check our availability here <<
All the very best!
