North Gregory Hotel, Winton


First built in 1879, the historic North Gregory Hotel is famous for being the location of the first live performance of Banjo Paterson’s Waltzing Matilda.  The grand old hotel takes pride of place, smack bang in the centre of the Winton township, next to the Royal Open Air Theatre Museum. However, location is not the only convenience; the hotel offers a restaurant, cafe, and bottle shop onsite, making dining out a breeze!

Families can be accommodated in rooms with a double/queen bed along with a single bed and rollaway. All rooms are air-conditioned and are equipped with tea/coffee making facilities and a bar fridge.

And after a dusty day exploring, the whole family can take advantage of the complimentary open air Artesian Spa – the only one of its kind in the west!

This is a stunning old hotel and well worth a visit, even if you don’t end up staying here. However, if you’re after hotels in Winton QLD, with country hospitality at its finest, then the North Gregory Hotel Winton is the place you’re after!


What’s to love?

The North Gregory Hotel Winton is located in a super central part of town and within easy walking distance to several tourist attractions making this a great place to stay.

What’s not to love?

Staying in a pub, there isn’t a lot of space, so it may not be ideal for families with young children.  


For those wanting to be in the absolute centre of it all and have easy access to great pub meals, then the North Gregory Hote is one to consider.
