EMBRACING HERITAGE

The Howlong Hotel Story

Nestled on the picturesque border between NSW and VIC, stands one of the areas oldest buildings: The Howlong Hotel (est 1858).

Steeped in history, we’re not just a pub, but an enduring landmark, and a testament to the timeless Aussie spirit. We’ve been serving up good times and mouth-watering meals to generations of locals, wanderers, and everyone in between for over a century.

Howlong, originally a popular Murray River crossing location in colonial times, (also used for the first overland mail delivery from Melbourne to Sydney), has long been a resting place for weary interstate travellers, and back in the day…goldminers.

From the moment the first red brick was laid, Howlong Hotel quickly grew to become a beloved gathering place, with more than 100 years of stories spun, drinks shared, and laughter echoing through the halls – etching memories into the very fabric of our walls.

So whether you’re after a hearty meal, a refreshing coldie, or simply a friendly smile, the Howlong Hotel welcomes you. Join us, and become a part of our story.
