In 1927 the Duke and Duchess of York (who are remembered as King George VI and the Queen Mother), set sail to Australian shores for the opening of the provisional Parliament House in Canberra.
During their royal tour, the British royal couple would visit many locations including a brief lunch at The Carrington Hotel, prior to viewing Echo Point, Leura and an overnight stay at Jenolan Caves.
The photograph above shows the Duke and Duchess of York waving to crowds from the steps of The Carrington Hotel.
Members of the British monarchy would make the same journey to The Carrington including the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester (uncle and aunt of Queen Elizabeth II) in 1946. This occasion was the official opening of extensions to the Blue Mountains District ANZAC Memorial Hospital.
