History of the Pub

The Historic Bredbo Inn is a main stop on the way to the South Coast and Snowy Mountains. It was established as an inn in 1836. The hotel has one of the longest running licenses in NSW and is one of the oldest pubs in Australia still operating. During the Kiandra gold rush Bredbo became a safe haven from bushrangers and an overnight stop for the gold coach.

The Inn, in the early 20th century hosted squatters, visitors, travellers and a number of ‘notables’ including the Australian poet, Banjo Patterson, Colonel J.M. (Jack) Arnott, Mark Foy, and Anthony Horden.

Publicans associated with the hotel from the 1870s to the mid 1890s were the Ware family. In 1871 the Inn was known as “Ware’s Accommodation House” and in 1895 the inn was purchased by Mr R.J. Goggin. The Inn was originally a stone and mud building which Mr Goggin added to from bricks made on site to form the present Bredbo Inn building. The present Inn includes parts of the original building and the original stable can be seen at the rear of the Inn.
