Fantastic Find!!

If you have a car and are just coming for a few days to see the blue mountains this place may seem a bit far on a map but I ensure the drive is worthwhile and not actually that far ! It’s also good if you are going to visit the caves. We had a lovely cabin, the standard of hygiene was above exceptional and the owners are just lovely, I highly recommend this place. Thank you for having us!!

Totally pleasant experience

On Saturday night 29 June 2019 we attended a birthday celebration at the Black and Gold Motel and also stayed overnight….we were greeted warmly and our check in was extremely efficient and friendly, We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and wonderful service in the bar area also which was most comfortable. The birthday function was fantastic. The staff were very pleasant and professional at all times and could not be more helpful. We highly recommend the Black Gold Motel, restaurant and bar and wish them a wonderful future.

Beginnings

Our History

The Black Gold Motel was originally the Old Wallerawang School, built in 1881 along with an adjoining residence. As the school grew, new buildings were added. The property was purchased by its current owners Robert and Linda Cluff in 1994. 

Through a series of imaginative transformations, they have created the Black Gold Motel – a clean, comfortable, up-to-date award-winning motel that guests have often described as a real gem.

The walls of the Black Gold Motel carry echoes of the region’s mining history. The name ‘Black Gold’ is derived from the coal mines that were previously common in the area. The coal was nicknamed ‘black gold’.

The buildings of the Motel have fond memories for generations of locals who attended the school, and the property stands as a proud icon of the town.

In recognition of the property’s history as a school, many rooms are named after school teachers of the past.

Wallerawang is a small township in the greater Blue Mountains area of New South Wales. It is located a short distance from Lithgow, adjacent to the Great Western Highway from Sydney.

Charles Darwin, the English naturalist, stayed in the area in 1836. In his book “The Voyage of the Beagle”, Darwin describes the countryside of the Wallerawang area and its wildlife, including the platypus.

The original inhabitants of the area west of the Blue Mountains were mainly the Wiradjuri indigenous Australians and possibly also the Wywandy people. ‘Wallerawang’ is a Wiradjuri word.
