Summertime fun at the Fairmont Blue Mountains Resort

Couched among the picturesque Blue Mountains, The Fairmont Resort offers a host of family friendly activities to enjoy this summer.

Located on the cusp of the Jamison Valley in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park, the Fairmont Resort is only a 90 minute drive from the Sydney CBD. Positioned just outside the charming village of Leura, its close proximity to the city makes the resort ideal for weekend getaways with the kids.


The January 2018 summer holiday program is sure to include an activity that excites every member of the family. The boutique resort has curated a fun-filled timetable consisting of indoor and outdoor activities that include pony rides, arts and crafts, cooking lessons for kids and train rides.

The Kidz Klub runs each afternoon from 2:30pm to 5pm.

The room is divided into two areas Ė thereís a space for children under four, and another for kids between the ages of five and 13. A mirror maze, indoor bowling, arcade games, ball pits and table tennis tables can be found inside the Kidz Zone, making for hours upon hours of entertainment.

The Fairmont Resort is set on nine and a half hectares of stunning countryside. The grounds boast impeccably manicured gardens and outdoor leisure facilities that take advantage of the surrounding vistas, making it the perfect destination for active families. Register for a game of golf on the resortís very own course, or sign up for a hit of tennis on one of two flood-lit grass courts.



A crowd favourite, the resort offers hand-led pony rides around the stable gardens. The friendly ponies are exceptionally trained and well mannered, and children always enjoy fostering relationships with these furry friends.


An indoor and outdoor swimming pool give guests of the Fairmont Resort the chance to cool off when the mercury rises. The outdoor pool features a deck with lounge chairs to relax on, while the indoor pool and accompanying spa are heated.



For when it comes time to sit back and enjoy a movie, The Fairmont Resort plays host to a 128-seat cinema thatís accessible to all resort guests. Four movie sessions run daily during the school holidays, with three movies catering specifically for family viewing.
