A centerpiece of Yackandandah since 1863, the Star Hotel brims with history and character. This iconic pub gained fame in the 2004 film Strange Bedfellows and on ABC's Backroads, hosting major local events like the Yackandandah Folk Festival.

Under owners Matt and Kim, the Star has been lovingly restored to its former glory. The renovated restaurant and beer garden now showcase a unique fusion menu of Southern USA meets Australian BBQ, with all meats smoked in-house using hand-made smokers. Partnering with local brewers, distillers and vineyards, the Star offers a stellar selection of craft beers, boutique gins, and regional wines.

Located on Yackandandah's main street and open daily, this buzzing venue is a must-visit. With its live music scene, warm hospitality and modern twist on traditional pub fare, the Star Hotel continues to shine as a beloved local gem. Bookings recommended to savour this iconic experience.
