Groups & Functions

The Canberra Inn was built in 1857, with round timber poles and framing, clad with handmade vertical timber slabs. These are building techniques characteristic of the pioneer era, and served it well as a regular stopping place for the Queanbeyan-Yass mail coach. A visitor in 1878 reported that the Inn was “deserving of wide renown for its excellent beer” and described its fare as “first class”.The Inn’s excellent reputation lives on, now with very modern facilities for your next function.
