Fitzroy Inn Historic Retreat

1 Ferguson Crescent, Mittagong

Welcome to the historic Fitzroy Inn, a Southern Highlands wedding venue, historic walk and boutique accommodation.

The Fitzroy Inn is one of the oldest and finest examples of Early Australian Settler’s Establishments circa 1836. Located 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. First of all it was established as a guest house in the State to provide rooms, and also sold liquor.

Today, the Fitzroy Inn continues that hospitable tradition, and as a result, has reopened as a country inn and wedding venue. Set amidst five acres of tranquil gardens with a stream flowing through it, and dotted with century-old oaks, it is certainly an estate to visit.


Pledge your love and loyalty at Fitzroy Inn nestled at the foothills of Mt Gibraltar. Perhaps you wish to hold your ceremony beside one of the century old oak trees or on the grand veranda. Our beautifully designed gardens and the original colonial building are the perfect setting for an elegant, intimate and romantic wedding.

We have a range of attractive packages to suit your every need. Our helpful staff will guide and help you plan this special day. Let us make your memories last forever. Please contact us for a viewing appointment. Family, friends and relatives are welcome to join you at the viewing.
