Drovers Dog Hotel Eumungerie - A Classic Outback Pub

Looking for a Freehold Business in the bush? Well this could be the one!


The Iconic Drovers Dog Hotel was originally built in 1872 and after fire destroyed the building in 1931 it was rebuilt and stands solid today. Located 37 kilometres North of Dubbo adjacent to the Newell Highway in the Central West of NSW.

Modern commercial kitchen provides meals every day to locals and tourists in a dining room and an outdoor/entertainment beer garden area able to seat 80 people also take away food. Other great features include a pool room, lounge bar with wood fire, dining area with open fire where so often after the meal many folk just settle in for a fun night. 12’ pressed metal ceilings, 4 bedrooms, an office, 2 private bathrooms and lounge room.

The bar has a cool room and several display fridges selling bottles, cans of alcohol and soft drinks plus tap beer. Trading hours 11am to closing.

The Drovers Dog is operating with 2 people and 1 casual in peak periods.

The current owners Dennis and Tracey are moving on after 15 years of pouring cold ones, listening to some tall tales and wonderful times with the locals and visitors alike. The pub has fed, watered and accommodated locals and travellers since 1872 and the new owners can look forward to meeting people that come to the hotel as a ‘watering hole’ and a break from the farm life plus with Newell State Highway 1 km from the pub front door there is good passing tourist trade from travellers calling in to meet the locals, have a meal and enjoy a yarn.

The Pub caters to a loyal community of farmers and tourists and boasts a great reputation with tour operators,

There’s the potential to take this humming business much further with entertainment, outback tourism and many festivals throughout the region to enjoy and there’s a stream of Interstate Trucks and grey nomads going past that hasn’t seriously been tapped into. The booming town of Dubbo is in such close proximity that day trippers often call out for a ‘country fix’!

The property of 2345m2 for sale is Freehold with town water connected.

Eumungerie was a town that developed around industry, namely ironbark sleeper cutting, for which the region was known, and farming and if the men weren’t farming they were cutting sleepers”. Tracey tells of an older local recalling a yarn where some of the local railway workers (or fettlers) would sneak over to the trucks at night laden with wood barrels containing beer and drill holes in them, siphon out the beer into their own containers and later plug the hole, with no one being any the wiser !!.
