Conferences and team events in the Blue Mountains


If you’re looking for a unique location for your next small conference or team-building event in Australia, consider staying in a World Heritage area at Blue Mountains YHA – just two hours from Sydney.

In the heart of Katoomba, and set in a heritage-listed Art Deco former Cabaret Club, this award-winning place to stay is close to all the action. It is often observed that it resembles a 4 Star Hotel with Bunks,..more then a Hostel!

It has a fabulous Lounge and dining area and a brilliant fully equipped commercial kitchen suitable for all your catering needs or even a Cooking Classe!

Stroll to cafes and restaurants or have your event catered for in-house. There are plenty of comfortable areas to congregate including dedicated groups rooms, and a commercial kitchen for all your catering needs.


Team-building activities

Go abseiling or canyoning with your team in the incredible gorges of the World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park. Visit Scenic World for a cable-car ride over the valleys or go on guided bushwalks… a trip to the mountains will unwind and re-energise your staff – they’ll be ready for another week of hard work when they return!

Local tour operator High n Wild is based at Blue Mountains YHA, and run one day trips to all the best spots.

There’s so much to see and do to balance out the hard work, you’ll need more than a day to experience everything the mountains has to offer. From the majestic lookout at Echo Point, to the thrilling ride on the steepest passenger railway in the world – the Scenic Railway – the Blue Mountains will invigorate your team with an adrenalin rush. If you have another day to spare, consider visiting the Australia’s most awesome cave system at Jenolan Caves, packed with incredible stalagmites and stalactites.


Blue Mountains YHA can tailor-make a program for your organisation’s needs, with the perfect combination of work, rest and play. It’s also easy to get to, being only a 5-minute walk from Katoomba train station (trains run regularly from Sydney) – or if you arrive by coach there is parking outside the property.

Accommodation is available in a range of room types including private rooms with ensuites, at great value prices.
