Saturday 20 - Monday 23 October

Over Labour weekend a large number of historic photos and artworks featuring the Careys Bay, the hotel and the surrounding harbour will be displayed in the Careys Bay Hotel lounge for the Heritage Festival.

Jean Pak, Careys Bay Hotel Head chef has created a special sharing platter available for purchase show-casing a taste of the food that would have been eaten around the harbour in the late 1800s. We have called it “The Chophouse Platter” in honour of Henry Dench whose first venture in Port Chalmers was the “New Jerusalem Coffee and Chop House” on the corner of George and Mount St.

Since 1874, Carey’s Bay Historic Hotel has been a handsome feature of the Otago Harbour. Port Chalmers Mayor, Henry Dench, built the hotel, perched on the banks of Carey’s Bay with gold field money. This truly Victorian Hotel and the oldest hotel building in the area was designed by renowned Dunedin architect Mr David Ross. Constructed of locally quarried Port Chalmers bluestone, the hotel’s first name was "The Crescent Family Hotel". 

Originally called Mansford Town after early settler William Henning Mansford, Carey’s Bay eventually acquired its name from early English settlers David and Hannah Carey who arrived in Dunedin on "The Magnet" in 1840.

For more information about the past and present of Careys Bay Hotel check out our website.
