The Travellers Rest Hotel was established in 1908, and passed through four generations of ownership until 2016. The building that we see today was built in 1937 at a time of peak farming activity in Thorpdale. Located a stones throw from the old Thorpdale Railway station, the hotel was designed to cater for local needs and an increasing amount of road traffic at 'this hitherto unknown beauty spot'.
Originally founded as a hotel and a general store, the business is now transitioning to becoming an iconic destination for locals and travellers to this region.
The Travellers Rest Hotel is a full-service venue, meaning we offer everything you need to host a special event which you and your guests will never forget. Whether you're looking at the upstairs function area accessing the first floor balcony, the restaurant, or the various outdoors areas, we have you covered. For any special requests you might have, we’ve got the connections around Gippsland to make it happen.
We have a 20 person minimum and offer functions from $40 per head, with catering options available.
