Mt Victoria received it's steam driven kick-start in 1868, becoming the rail terminus until 1869. Later, it would be the location of a Railway Refreshment Room (RRR) where travelers could gulp down some hot food before continuing their journey.

Today, many of the village's buildings are heritage listed, with the village retaining much of its nineteenth century charm; more so than any other Blue Mountains village. At the railway station, the local Historical Society's museum takes up much of the indoor part, whilst on the east-bound platform, some of the old semaphore signals have been set up for visitors to operate.

Within an easy stroll of the station, visitors will find  antique shops, galleries, cafés & restaurants, & accommodation.

Having reached Mt Victoria, road and railway builders alike started searching for a way down the western escarpment. Numerous routes have been employed & proposed over the years. Having followed the road up the Blue Mountains, the railway now heads north, following Darling Causeway across the head of the Grose River gorge.

For many years, the Caves Express brought tourists to Mt Victoria, from where they traveled by road coach to Jenolan Caves.
