A Hidden gem on the cliff's edge

Seaside Dining & Drinks

steeped in history

Heritage Hotel

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.

Sitting high on a cliff with sublime ocean views, The Scarborough is a wonderful place to while away a sunny lunchtime. Arrive early to secure a table on the grass at the edge of the cliff, otherwise book a table further back, or up on a balcony.
