In the little town of Hebel it feel like time has stood still, leaving behind tales of the Ned Kelly gang, Cobb & Co and dance halls. Be sure to stretch your legs whilst walking around the Hebel Historical Circle, a public art piece which illustrates the stories in Hebel's history. Hebel Hotel is a gem of a country pub. Colourful artwork by John Murray adorns the front of the pub, with the interior decked out in recycled furniture made from reclaimed bush finds.

Built as a dance hall in 1897, Hebel General Store retains its original dance floor but now offers amazing home cooked cakes, desserts and meals. By night it's a restaurant under the stars complete with white tablecloths and flowers on the tables.
