Established in 1881, with additions being made in 1919 and 1927, Hotel Gearin is a beautiful example of the Deco period. Originally built by George Biles, the hotel was bought and named in 1910 by one Mrs Gearin. The centrepiece of the hotel is the classic Australian “long bar” where we serve ice cold Australian and imported draught beers along with a large range of wines, spirits and bottled beers. Espresso coffee and other non-alcoholic refreshments are also available. Cool in summer, the hotel is beautifully warmed by two cosy open fireplaces in winter. Come try our comfortable dining room, serving hearty and inexpensive meals to delight the holiday maker and traveller. The dining room is also available for functions, suitable for 200 guests. We have Aussie “pub style” accommodation, ensuites as well as affordable budget backpacker rooms. Something to suit everyone!
