If you are like many other parents, 2020 may have left you feeling a bit disconnected.

There are many groups running in the Blue Mountains to help you find people to connect with, and I thought I could help you navigate your options.

There are groups for homeschoolers, home birthers, cloth nappy lovers, budding musicians, story lovers and also groups for dads.

Playgroups can provide wonderful opportunities….

Opportunities to let your kids make mess and noise outside of your home.

Opportunities to connect with other parents with shared interests.

Opportunities to connect with other parents in your local area.

Opportunities to facilitate friendships for our children.

Opportunity to just get out of the house and have an adult conversation….Ummmm Yes Please!!!


I have listed groups geographically, to help with accessibility, but some groups are worth travelling a bit more for if you feel aligned with what they are about and there are more chances of finding ‘your people’. Click on the appropriate link below then choose from the options (playgroups, Library groups, Music Groups) to help find the group you are looking for.


If you live in the Lower Mountains:

Playgroups, Library and Music Groups


If you live in the Mid Mountains:

Playgroups and Library Groups


If you Live in the Upper Mountains:

Playgroups, Library and Music Groups


Because of the times we are in, venues and dates are still changing and some places require bookings. I have tried to help you find all the information you need to make these changes easier.

If you want some help navigating all the other aspects of the Blue Mountains for families,



I hope this resource is helpful to you.

Never hesitate to reach out.


Sincerely, Rachel xx
