More About Our Place

Tibooburra Hotel (cont)

The Tibooburra Hotel is an elegant two-storey sandstone building on the corner of Briscoe and Wills Street.  It is the oldest of the two hotels left remaining in Tibooburra and was built of locally cut sandstone in 1882.  The sandstone was transported to town by horse and cart and then hand-cut and hand- chipped to form the  beautiful stone structure which remains today.

The first licensee of the Tibooburra Hotel was Mary Kelly, followed by William Robinson, 1882-1883, Patrick Francis in 1884, and Henry Treanor in 1895.  A succession of licensees have followed. During its lifetime the hotel has undergone several name changes, from the Albert Hotel to the Royal Hotel and back to the Tibooburra Hotel.  Locally it is known as the "Two-Storey"

The hotel would have been used by locals and travelers alike, with Cobb and Co coaches carrying mail and passengers twice a week to the town.
