Dream country pub in Taralga goes under the hammer next Friday

Glynis Quinlan 12 February 2018

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own historic country pub? Perhaps you fancy spending your days yarning with the locals, talking to passing travellers and offering people the delights of rural hospitality?

That’s exactly the opportunity which will be on offer when the historic Taralga Hotel goes up for auction next Friday, June 2.

Located 90 minutes’ drive from Canberra and 30 minutes from Goulburn, the bluestone hotel appears to be a business opportunity and a dream all rolled into one.

The property has a price guide of over $700,000 and is attracting serious interest from tree-changers, investors, city residents, and people from regional locations as far afield as Dubbo, Bateman’s Bay and Wellington.

Established in 1876, the two-storey hotel has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a fully-enclosed beer garden and a restaurant heated by a log fire.

There is also a heritage building on the site known as ‘Blacksmith’s Cottage’ which could be developed into more guest rooms or used for other purposes.

The Taralga Hotel sits on a 3,230 square metre block and is located on the sealed tablelands way.

“It’s set in the heart of Taralga on a really good block size and is known for serving large food portions,” said David Medina from Elders Real Estate Goulburn.

He said the hotel has a lot of warmth and ambience, making it a popular drawcard for patrons.

“There’s a lot of Sydney money in Taralga. It’s a very popular place for motorbike and car clubs, and travellers on their way to destinations.”

Mr Medina said that the sale includes the property, the business, the stock and the like and that the purchaser could “walk in and take over and commence business as a going concern”.

“The business opportunity here at the Taralga Hotel is wonderful. Under the current owner’s stewardship it certainly represents a unique and wonderful opportunity for those seeking to get into what is a very very established business,” Mr Medina said.

“It has seven bedrooms catering for those who want weekends away or are passing through, a wonderful kitchen, meals and bar area and, of course, that famous dining room with the open fireplace filled with warmth and charm.

“It is a great family pub as well, with a pool table and plenty of space to run around. Or maybe sit on the verandah out the front and watch the sun rise or set.”

The Taralga Hotel is located at 24 Orchard Street, Taralga and will be auctioned at 11 am on Friday, June 2 at 88 Hume Street, Goulburn.
