The Carrington Hotel history tour with Paul Innes 

Celebrate the Roaring 20s with a tour through the iconic Carrington Hotel with the Carrington's own historian, Paul Innes. Revel in 1920s tales from the Hotel's past as you walk through the corridors of history. The 20s were an exciting time in the Blue Mountains, Paul Innes said, "Thousands of visitors spilled from train carriages, while many of the wealthy arrived by car, the sleek bodies and exquisite detail glinting as they slid along the driveways of grand hotels, spa retreats and guesthouses . . . The wave of visitors in the 1920s took to the dance floors, the cinemas, went on driving trips, took the “bracing air’’ on brisk bushwalks and took in the live bands, ate out and shopped . . . Edwardian older ladies tut-tutted about the antics of the young “flappers’’ who wore bobbed hairstyles, shapeless clothing that revealed far too much leg, went on unchaperoned drives with boys and, gasp, occasionally flashed their knickers during exuberant dancing."
