Welcome to The Family Hotel!
Tibooburra's Family Hotel is an authentic outback family pub, not just a name, that will welcome you and your family like one of their own.
The publicans, Melissa and William, have built on the history of their iconic pub (built 1882) to create an experience of genuine country hospitality often missing in the rushed and impersonal ways of the city. The Family Hotel is also famed for the Murals that cover the walls of the bar. Created in the 1960s by Clifton Pugh, Russell Drysdale and others, they are a must-see! Not for the sensitive as they are a bit bawdy.
The locals will ask "how you doing", they do mean it and will be up for a chat - in true Corner County style.
The name Tibooburra is a transliteration of the First Nation word meaning 'heap of boulders'. It is easy to understand why after visiting the area.
Tibooburra is the perfect base for exploring Sturt National Park, Depot Glen, Pooles Grave, Mt Sturt, and Milparinka.
The Family Hotel provides the best way to soak up the outback spirit of the area.
Drop in and say G'day to Melissa and William, as well as the welcoming locals!
