Like the surrounding townships of the Blue Mountains, Hazelbrook was developed after the arrival of the railway line in the 1860’s, with the interest in rural retreat holidays developing strongly in the 1880’s. Hazelbrook was originally named after ‘Hazelbrook House’, the first property in Hazelbrook to be built in the 1870’s by Svonte Noles. The name Hazelbrook was adopted in 1894, when Hazelbrook Railway Station was opened opposite the home. Unfortunately, Hazelbrook House no longer exists, however Selwood House is a heritage-listed building in the nearby vicinity, and now houses a veterinary practice, Selwood Vet.
Over the recent years, Hazelbrook has undergone some major changes, making room for the upgrade of the Great Western Highway, widening from two to four lanes. Its local shopping centre is well suited to catering for the local community. Featuring a local supermarket, various restaurants and cafes, post office and several other local stores, the town centre has a unique community atmosphere.
On the opposite side of the Railway Line, you can walk to Victor Falls, Terrace Falls and Bedford Pool, via Terrace Falls Road. There is also a track which leads into Mabel Falls, Hazel Falls and Edith Falls.
Hazelbrook is the home to Gloria Park, featuring two open tennis courts, play equipment, Hazelbrook Bowling Club and two athletics ovals, often used for cricket, soccer and other local sporting activities.
