Description

"The pub without a town". Cobb and Co. once serviced this town with it's regular coach schedule. All that remains today from those early pioneering days in the Toompine Hotel (circa 1893), is a population of two.

As with many Outback Pubs, Toompine is a great place to have a beer or two and a good yarn. Stop in and enjoy the unique atmosphere that includes unbeatable friendly service, all the interesting and entertaining locals and their stories, and extensive menageries to match!
