Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains





The multi award-winning Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains which is only one and a half hours from Sydney,
will create a memorable and unique event experience in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. 
On the cusp of the dramatic Jamison Valley, the panoramic Fairmont Resort is the pinnacle of upscale accommodation in Leura,
one of the most charming mountain villages in Australia.

 Rooms and suites in the resort showcase breathtaking views of the Jamison Valley, the Leura Golf Club or the
beautifully designed gardens and walkways.  The extensive grounds host a heated indoor pool and spa, outdoor pool
and deck, gym, library, billiard room, golf course and tennis course.

 Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains has been designed to offer the best of both worlds - a stylish and practically designed conference venue,
along with 4.5 star resort style service and amenities that make the most of the picturesque mountain setting.

 The Fairmont Resort is offering a special rate of $209/night (room only) to conference delegates,
for bookings between Sunday 14 October 2018 until Friday 19 October 2018.
