I swear it's haunted! The people who work there don't really engage with the customers. There's some interesting stuff to check out and buy.

Looking for out of the ordinary gifts and trinkets? Come into this weird and fascinating shop in the heart of Katoomba. There you will find a range of carefully selected items both historical and modern Morticia Adams would be proud to own.

I’ve been to this shop many times, for many bits and bobs. From “creepy” to “cute” this shop has it all. Definitely worth going! I love Odd Mountain.

An accidental find on our first walk around Katoomba street. Great gift ideas for those who like quirky things and some pretty mysterious finds. Captures the imagination and displays a collection of oddities. Worth a second visit.

If you're in to odd stuff, very odd stuff then this is the shop for you. It's early days yet, but no doubt this shop will develop into something very weird. Don't go there if you have a weak tummy!

So excited to see this curious, fascinating shop open. It's exactly the kind of place we've wanted to visit. Can't wait to go back in and shop til we drop (literally). Thanks so much!
