The History of Katooomba RSL

After a devastating fire in February 2017, Katoomba RSL has rebuilt their premises to be bigger and better than ever before. The $12 million-dollar development will be an exciting and unique hospitality and events venue sporting three bars, a brand new restaurant, children’s play area, terraces, several lounges plus an events centre that will seat 300+ people. We would like to thank all of our Members and the local Blue Mountains City Council for their continued support throughout this difficult journey. We are excited to introduce our brand new Club, brand new Restaurant and State of the Art Facilities which we will proudly, officially reopen on Saturday 24th August 2019.

Right in the heart of Katoomba, within the beautiful Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the venue will be the perfect place for locals and tourists to visit and the second home to many Members and their guests in the Blue Mountains region. Located just 90 minutes drive from Sydney, it’s the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. For a relaxed family dining experience, great entertainment, Club bars and a breath of fresh air, visit the brand new Katoomba RSL.

We are a not-for-profit community-based organisation. Our purpose is to contribute to the local community by providing a wide range of affordable services and by supporting local charities and sporting clubs. Supporting the community that supports us…
