There's nothing quite like a good old fashioned beer served at a country pub. There are a number of taverns in Mathoura. The middle pub, the top pub and a few dotted around the side streets.
The Pastoral Hotel in 1908 was weather board and the licencee was Gus Pollard. It was rebuilt in 1914-15 in bricks made locally. In 1920 a disastrous fire in Livingstone Street burned several shops and houses and damaged the Pastoral Hotel. It was known as the middle pub until the Charleston's Hotel (The Top Pub) burnt down in the mid 1980's. It still provides great country hospitality, cold beer and a good yarn.
A nice snug little Pub, The Pastoral is great for a truly authentic local experience.

Some put holidays off until the warmer months, but as you can see in this beautiful image shot at the back of our property on Gulpa Creek, winter can be a magical time in Mathoura. Take a family trip or as a couple, bring a fishing line down to the creek and pack a picnic. A cosy camp fire is the perfect place to make memories and toast some marshmellows while the birds twitter above. Canoeing is also popular at this time of year and we are close to some of the best walking tracks through the National Park you'd ever dream to roam.
