The Newport Arms Hotel was a historical hotel located on the shores of Pittwater. In 2015 it was purchased by Hospitality group Merivale and renamed The Newport. The hotel was first constructed in 1880, and is still a popular spot for tourists and visitors to visit on the weekend.
Charles Edward Jeannerett, an entrepreneur from Sydney first established the hotel in 1880, as well as the adjacent Newport wharf. In 1881 Jeannerett hosted the visits by Prince Albert and Prince George (later to become King George V), taking them on a tour of the surrounding Pittwater and up the Hawkesbury River system. In the early 1890s day trippers would visit the hotel on the weekends, and drink bootleg alcohol that was produced by the McCarrs Creek moonshiners.
In 2015, The Newport Arms Hotel was purchased by Merivale and renamed The Newport. Merivale launched the first phase of Newport’s landmark redevelopment in March 2016.
Due to the sheer scale of the property, Merivale have planned a gradual and thoughtful approach to its redevelopment, with stages two and three set to be revealed later in 2016.
