The Scarborough holds a special place in the hearts of locals and history buffs alike. Established in 1886, the hotel is the region’s oldest licensed venue and an Illawarra icon.
Deeply significant to the local area, the old mining town of South Clifton was re-named ‘Scarborough’ after the establishment in 1903. Throughout the early 1900’s it remained at the centre of community life, housing some of the area’s most meaningful events.
A fine example of Victorian-style houses in the area, The Scarborough has never been rebuilt or drastically refurbished and still contains original features, sharing tales of the past with visitors of today.
The Scarborough Hotel is open. Albeit with reduced trading hours and some operating restrictions.
