Best things to do in Australia's Blue Mountains?

My boyfriend and I are going with my parents to Australia in June, and my parents have tasked us with finding out things to do for the portion of our trip in the Blue Mountains, which will be in early June. What are your favorite things to do there in the winter? What are some things that would be good for a group of four adults who are not particularly outdoorsy or athletic?

Things we are looking for in particular: museums, sites of particular natural beauty, restaurants that can accommodate both a vegan diner and a meat-and-potatoes sort of diner, places to go on walks, cultural events, etc. Our group is capable of things like low-grade hikes or bike rides, but nothing very strenuous.
We will be in the Blue Mountains for four days and three nights. We'll be staying at Lilianfels, should you have any recommendations specific to it.
It is my understanding that the average temperature for that time of year in Katoomba is 10 celsius (50 fahrenheit). Should we bring winter coats for cold evenings, or will lighter weight autumn jackets be sufficient?
