Corner Country Accommodation
Welcome to Noccundra Hotel!
Serving Beer since 1882, the Historic Sandstone Noccundra Hotel, on Nockatunga Station South-West QLD, invites you to experience a little bit of the past on our gum-lined river-fronted bush camp grounds.
The Noccundra Hotel is the only surviving building in the historic township of Noccundra, and it serves as an important link with the establishment of pastoral settlement in the area. The Hotel was built of quarried sandstone, and transported to Noccundra by camel train. The township of Noccundra has a population of 3 and is situated adjacent to the Wilson River, 142km west of Thargomindah.
Mr James Gardiner was granted the first liquor licence for the Noccundra Hotel in 1886. The Hotel was an important link in Outback Communications, and became a service point for travellers and as a focus for community events. The Hotel was Heritage Listed in 1977.
A popular spot for bush walkers, bird watches and kayaking.
Noccundra Hotel is open 7-days (with the exception of Good Friday and Christmas day) and meals are available daily. Picnic lunches available with prior arrangement. Tours and group bookings welcome. Neil & Margie Turner purchased the business in October 2012. Originally from South Australia, they bring new ideas and fresh thinking to the (very) small outback town.
Along with their pets, George, Jane, Simon and Spot they entertain and enlighten travellers and locals alike on the history of the Hotel and surrounding area.
