Welcome to The Historic Fitzroy Inn one of the oldest and finest examples of Early Australian Settlers Establishments circa 1836 and still going strong.
Only one hour from the centre of Sydney by car and 2 hours by train.
Set on the edge of a rural town, this charming Victorian colonial building with its wrap-around verandah opened as the Fitzroy Inn in 1836, and was the first lodge or guest house in the State to provide rooms as well as liquor.
Today, the Fitzroy Inn continues that hospitable tradition and recently reopened as a country inn, set amidst five acres of tranquil, terraced gardens with a stream flowing through it. The estate is situated amongst the rolling hills of the Southern Highlands on an acreage dotted with century-old oaks overlooking Alexandra Mountain.
Did you Know?
The original kitchen in the cellars has been described by some historians as ‘the finest example’ of a convict-era built kitchen remaining in Australia. The ‘water-well’ in the middle of the floor, hand-cut into the shale below the building, is a truly remarkable work of convict masonry and craftsmanship. The convict cell, used to hold prisoners on their way to Berrima Gaol, retains the original iron shackles and hand-turned bars which securely restrained its hapless guests.
