The Carrington Hotel is one of the Blue Mountains premier hotels and tourist attractions.
Opened in 1883 as The Great Western, this Grand Old Lady soon became a popular mountain retreat for international visitors, the elite of Sydney, and those eager to see the natural wonders of the Blue Mountains.
Renamed ‘The Carrington’ in 1886, in honour of the then Governor of New South Wales, Lord Carrington, the hotel was extended by its new owner, Mr F C Goyder who is credited with the creation of The Grand Dining Room. With its extended and upgraded facilities, The Carrington gained even more acceptance as a world class establishment.
Recently, Ask Roz wandered the grounds of the Carrington and was surprised at the plethora of colours, throughout the grounds, despite it being mid Summer.
The next time you’re in Katoomba, set aside 30 minutes and have a stroll around the Carrington’s gardens.
