Get away from the major tourist routes and discover a unique and unspoiled part of country Australia. Only 4 hours northwest of Sydney, the Victoria Hotel, Moonan Flat can be found 50km east of Scone on the Gloucester Road, at the base of the spectacular Barrington Tops Mountains.
Built on the banks of the Hunter River the late 1860’s, the historic pub is a remnant of the bustling gold-rush days. Originally a stage coach stop, frequented by bush rangers, today it provides an ideal refreshment stop.
The Hotel is also a popular weekend
destination situated only 15klms from the famous ‘dingo gate’, which marks the
entrance to Barrington Tops and has excellent access into those parts that can still
be reached by road.
Barrington Tops, with its rain forests,
waterfalls and breathtaking views, is an important wilderness area.
Why not spend a day driving to Moonan Flat
via the Hunter Valley, arriving in time for a relaxing meal in our charming
restaurant. Spend a night or two at the
Victoria Hotel followed by a scenic trip across the Tops.
