Not a town many travellers stop at, but that is their loss. In the heart of bluebush country, about 140km north-east of Adelaide, not far out of Morgan and the Riverland, this is a pub with a long and interesting history.

Peter and Tracey will make you very welcome, and the food is wonderful. The Lamb Rack is juicy and tender; just beautiful. But the Saltbush Mutton Pie is sensational; one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. Rich and full of flavour, with nice chunky chips and a tasty salad. Do yourself a favour!

Unfortunately, I only get over to this area a few times a year, but try to make sure I get to Mt Mary Hotel whenever I do.

When I thought all was lost with regards to the Aussie outback pub, all being taken over by rich city folk as a hobbie and not much more than an interest in drinking and tekking their yuppy friends " we own a pub" along comes the Mount Mary Hotel.
Set inbetween Morgan and Eudunda with its cluster of homes scattered around it an old railway stop is like a beacon on a dark winters night.
The place hits you when you enter like you have jumped out of Marty Mcfly,s Delorean into the good old days. Stop and take a look around at whats hanging on the walls thats our history right there.
Do not however expect a good old dollop of pub grub. You will however get a top class resaurant meal and very very cold beer.
Frienship comes not only from behind the bar but the locals, once you break through the apparently tough skins are very friendly and will keep your conversation very interesting as long as you choose to linger at this great watering hole.
Give it a try and y,all will go back for more. :-)

We have been several times and will continue going back. Wee had my birthday lunch with 20 friends. They Carreras a BBQ lunch with plenty of salads and meat plus there were three of us with food issues and there was no trouble on catering for our needs. It has a great atmosphere of days gone by in the aussie country. The new owners have been there just over 12 months and are very friendly

The beer is cold, the publican chatty and friendly. Accommodation is cheap. It's a couple of hours from Adelaide - it looks like there is nothing there but like a lot of places scratch under the surface and there is a lot going on -

Thank AdelaideHarry
