Plan Your Visit

Thinking of coming to visit? GREAT!  We would love to see you in Dungog!

We are located in Dungog's oldest building, the Dungog Inn, built in the 1840s.  The building itself has been fully renovated, but still retains all of the rustic charms you'd expect from this era.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY.  We are a family-friendly business and love having little people around!  We are happy to have our customers pop in and picnic in the secure backyard area, and have free activities for kids everyday.  A cute little cubby for little people is located on the premises and kids are free to run around and enjoy the backyard.

PETS.  We love pets, but prefer please if you can please leave pets at home.  Some little people are sadly afraid of dogs and we like to ensure the space is always comfortable for everyone to enjoy.  If you do happen to have a dog with you for your visit, we ask that you kindly tie your dog up near our back gate in the shade. We'd be very happy to pop out a water bowl for all pets that come to visit!
