The Queens’ Ball
Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend
7pm till Midnight, 12 June 2022
Fairmont Resort & Spa Blue Mountains
1 Sublime Point Rd, Leura, NSW
The annual Three Sisters Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend Costume Ball falls on a fortuitous conjunction, the Queen’s Birthday, the Platinum Anniversary of HRM’s reign and the Ruby celebratory year of the Three Sisters’ Ball. Settling on a theme for the ball was, therefore, a no brainer.
Platinum. Ruby. Queens.
The Platinum and Ruby Queens’ Ball.
The happy consequence: The Three Sisters Platinum and Ruby Queens’ Ball is born. A Queens’ Ball that invites flamboyance, style, fun, gowns and an unbridled chance for unrestrained creativity.

The Three Sisters and the Medlow Bath Park Residents Association are raising funds to preserve this important and historical feature. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated.
For pre-dinner drinks the Ball Room foyer becomes the festival of colour as the assembled sweep down the gilded stairs to appreciation of their fellow guests. Pre ball is the time to greet old friends, gaze upon the most amazing costumes and praise the creativity and skills and beauty in that our rainbow community excels.
Once we have settled at our table and had a bit of a dance we will be served a delicious three course meal. The ticket includes wine and beer during the meal.
Keeping with our 40-year tradition, guests are invited to decorate their tables. Time has been set aside from 1pm until 3pm on the day of the ball to enable tables to be decorated. Again, in accordance with our tradition, the Fairmont staff will judge the Best Decorated Table Award.
The Awards and The Grand Parade
It wouldn’t be a Three Sisters Ball without giving everyone an opportunity to show off their fabulousness, their creativity and their superb style. The following awards will be made:
- Best Decorated Table
- Best Group Costume
- Best Male Costume
- Best Female Costume
- Best Couple in Costume
- Belle of the Ball
The Belle of the Ball will lead the Grand Parade, which will be full of colour and fabulousness. The Belle will be followed by the award winners and then, well, everyone. Every queen should have a turnabout the dance floor.
This Ruby Anniversary, the Three Sisters have pulled out all stops in the fabulousness department and secured the marvellous talent of Mr/Ms/They Frock Hudson.
Frock will host the evening and employ her immense talent to entertain you in royal style.
Frock Hudson describes himself as a “fabulous, furry and a whole heap of fun.” Frock is a talented cabaret performer, a stalwart of the LGBTIQ community, a legend in his home town of Melbourne, and a budding legend in the Sydney community. Frock is guaranteed to inject a specialness into the Platinum and Ruby Queens’ Ball, whether it be as hostess with the mostess or entertainer par excellence.
