The best Blue Mountains venues for your next conference or team retreat

When it comes to picking a venue in the Blue Mountains and surrounding regions, you will find yourself spoilt for choice! There are so many fantastic venues and vendors equipped to make your event a success.

For my specialty, medium conferences and team retreats for associations and corporates, I have a few favourites that I go to first.

The Fairmont Resort & Spa Blue Mountains

For medium to large conferences the Fairmont Resort is my number one choice. Not only have I worked with them to put on a variety of conferences and always had an excellent experience, they have a versatility of facilities that can’t be beaten.

Not only do they have large conference rooms, the space can be easily adjusted to facilitate smaller workshop sessions. It also has a foyer area that is excellent as an expo display area and catering space. Additionally, it opens out to a lovely grassy platform with views out to the beautiful Blue Mountains!

The Fairmont has plenty of accommodation, a variety of restaurant options, a spa and more. It also rates highly with me as it is very child friendly with activities and an indoor / outdoor playground available.

This venue would be best for association conferences or medium to large corporate events.

The Carrington Hotel

Located in the main street of Katoomba, the heritage Carrington Hotel is a fantastic venue for small or intimate events. Get the experience of the historical Katoomba and be just steps away from all the restaurants and shops Katoomba has to offer.

The Carrington is especially good for business retreats or themed events. They often participate in a variety of special events in the Blue Mountains like the Lady Luck Festival or YuleFest so are well equipped to handle themes or occasions.
