This Country Pub Has Been Frozen In Time For Almost 100 Years

The Bendigo Hotel in Dunolly is not a pub you can head into. It’s a pub with no beer, and it’s been that way for almost 100 years. Now, it’s up for sale, and it’s expected to fetch $1.5M.

Frozen in time, the Bendigo Hotel was purchased by the current owner’s family from the publican, Robert Samers, in 1925. The building has since been used as storage for their neighbouring business, T.P. Daley General Merchant.

“The Welcome Stranger gold nugget was weighed at the bank across the road where they had to cut it up because it was too big for their scales. And that happened eight years after the hotel opened, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a few celebrations (at the Bendigo) by John Deason and Richard Oates.” Ballarat Real Estate Marybourough sales manager Kate Ashton told Real Commercial.
