Iconic hotel still going strong
IF walls could talk, then undoubtedly the Kevington Hotel would have a lot to say.
With more than 150 years of history steeped into the building, the little pub in the bush is an iconic rest stop for visitors and locals alike.
With bush timber veranda posts, a beer garden that overlooks the Goulburn River and a dining room that oozes charm, the Kevington Hotel is a not to be missed spot in the Jamieson Valley.
Only 10 kilometres past the town of Jamieson on the Woods Point Road, and still on a sealed road, the hotel is run by Wayne and LynMaree Poole.
“The Kevington Hotel is living history,” Wayne says.
“It’s the only example of a hotel built in the 1860s gold rush era that remains standing, so the ambience of the place speaks for itself.”
Catering for all types and groups, the hotel offers eight rooms and can accommodate up to 28 overnight guests.
There is also a large dining room, which boasts metropolitan quality meals.
“We have a great menu here, and we are particularly proud of our lamb racks, chicken mascarpone and our gluten free salmon fillet.”
Popular with four wheel drive enthusiasts, trail bike riders, hunters and tourists, the Kevington Hotel is also one of the last resting stops before the famous township of Woods Point.
The Kevington Hotel is open seven days a week, early till late.
