One Tree Hotel

A pub with only one tree

Take yourself back in time to the old Cobb & Co staging post of the One Tree Hotel made famous by Banjo Patterson's immortal poem, 'Hay and Hell and Booligal'. Built in 1862, the One Tree Hotel was named because of this lone large gum tree growing on a clay pan near a shallow fresh water well, about half a mile away. The hotel was a thriving business in the days until the licence was allowed to lapse in 1942.

The building stands alone against the skyline, some 38kms from Hay as a reminder of the days of squatter's runs and stage coaches. What a famous landmark it was, as it stood against the far horizons.
