THE HYDRO MAJESTIC HOTEL
THE TASTE OF THE BLUE MOUNTAINS
Let’s put on a show!
Stage one opens 2014
The iconic Hydro Majestic Hotel in the Blue Mountains has started its revitalisation. This investment in the transformation of the ‘Hydro’ is a vote of confidence in regional NSW and in the future of tourism in the Blue Mountains.
The Hydro is scheduled to open in two stages, with construction of Stage One public areas and historic buildings to be completed in 2014. The long awaited opportunity to peel back the layers and rediscover the essence of the Hydro will see the famous property active again across more than one kilometre along the escarpment to the spectacular Megalong Valley, within the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.
Majestic Point Lookout
A key element in making the Hydro Majestic available to the general public is the creation of a new Majestic Point Lookout – public entry and gateway to the largest new component of the Hydro Majestic.
