Established in 1971, Kenvale College is proud to be Australia’s first private Hospitality College.

It was one of the first colleges to introduce courses that met the tourism and hospitality industry’s demands for professional education and training.

In 1989, Kenvale’s course was among the first to gain recognition by the industry. In 1992, the Diploma course received accreditation at management level and was upgraded to Advanced Diploma in 1995 by relevant industry and government review panels.

During its history, Kenvale College has been awarded with the NSW Tourism Awards for Excellence in Industry Education. It has been a Finalist in both the Awards of the Decade for Excellence in Industry Education, and the Mitre 10 Training Provider of the Year.

Kenvale College celebrated its 25th anniversary with Mr Juan Antonio Samaranch, then President of the International Olympic Committee as guest of honour.

The Honourable Tony Abbot, then the Minister for Employment, Workplace Relations and Small Business officially opened the Academic Building of the College in March 2001.
