The JCCA 2020 National Rally

The 2020 National Rally will be held in the NSW Blue Mountains town of Katoomba. Katoomba is a holiday destination high up in the Blue Mountains and very close to many of the tourist attractions such as the famous Three Sisters and the Scenic Skyway. Getting to Katoomba is easy for Sydney members being less than a two hour drive, and for those coming from the west, including South and West Australia, it saves having to deal with Sydney traffic. Likewise those coming from Victoria and Queensland you may wish to choose coming via the less travelled roads inland and reach Katoomba from the west. The venue for the Rally will be the historic and splendid Carrington Hotel where we have the Ballroom reserved for our Friday and Saturday evening dinners, the Grand Dining Room for the Grand Gatsby Sunday Dinner, and the Library for Registration and the AGM. There is a range of accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets. Undercover parking for 20 cars is exclusively reserved for Jensens! Outdoor parking is also onsite.

The Carrington Hotel

Built in 1882, The Carrington Hotel is a unique heritage listed property, steeped in history and the elegance of a bygone era. For decades it was the largest structure west of Sydney. One of the early extensions was when the power station was built in 1910 and it provided the first electricity supply not only to the Carrington Hotel but also to Katoomba and other Blue Mountains towns. The octagonal brick chimney remains an important Katoomba landmark, and this complex now houses a brewery – no doubt will be visited by one or two members! The Carrington is the only 19th century grand resort hotel still in operating in NSW. At 1,107m altitude the clear, cool mountain air is a delight – but being May pack your winter woollies! There’s no excuse for your car to overheat! The Carrington has a range of facilities and services, and is within minutes from local tourist attractions and leisure activities. Centrally located on Katoomba’s main street, it is flanked by restaurants, cafes, galleries and specialty shops – including the delightful Avalon Art Deco café bar across the road.
Hosting 64 accommodation rooms of different styles with stunning reception rooms such as Champagne Charlie’s Cocktail Bar, the Grand Dining Room, the magnificent Ballroom, the Library, the Award winning Old City Bank Brasserie and the Carrington Cellars & Deli. There is lift access to upper floors and disabled rooms are available. There are several cosy areas for guests to sit and chat and catch up on old times or make new friends, just what our National Rally is well known for. The magnificent Billiard Room offers a chance for all those ‘pool husslers’ in the group to try their hand at a game or two.

Accommodation
There is a variety of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Rooms range from Traditional Rooms with Victorian private bathrooms nearby, mid-range Colonial rooms with ensuites through to Premier Rooms with spas (some with views), and the Suites. We have secured discounted rates for a full three night stay. 

Planned Program
There is just so much to see and do in the Blue Mountains and noting that many attendees will have driven a long way to the event it is planned that you can do as much or as little as you want. One huge benefit is that most of the attractions of Katoomba are within walking distance or a short bus ride/drive away. However on the Saturday there will be two options - a drive to Mount Panorama at Bathurst and after a few hot laps we will have lunch at Tarana before returning back to Katoomba, or a bus tour of the Blue Mountains with a lunch stop at the Megalong Valley Tea Rooms. Sunday’s Show and Shine is will be at Blackheath’s Jubilee Park with catering by the local Scouts and the coffee and antique shops of Blackheath a short stroll away. Friday and Saturday dinners will be in the Ballroom, and pre dinner drinks will be in a different bar every night – variety is the spice of life! The Grand Dinner on Sunday night will be in the Grand Dining Room and will be a Great Gatsby Dinner - so bring your glad rags! This will be a National Rally to remember – contact NSW/ACT State Rep Tony Cope with queries nationalrally@jcca.org.au or 0448 400 160.
