The charming Lion of Waterloo Tavern dates back to 1841, making it one of the original hotels in the Wellington area. Located about 49km south-east of Dubbo, the Lion of Waterloois one of the few remaining slab timber buildings still standing from the colonial era of Australia's history, with the exterior front wall constructed from hand-cut ironbark slabs and the interior still showing some bricks baring the sign of the convict brick makers.
The tavern once served as a changing station for Cobb & Co coaches, and in 1854, was the site of the last known duel in Australia.
These days, the Lion of Waterloo Tavern has been renovated to operate as a wine bar, restaurant and function centre. Be sure to stop by and experience this slice of Australian history!
