Mundaring Weir Hotel

Hotel in Mundaring

Overlooking the weir, this 1898 pub has bucketloads of ramshackle character. Rooms are simple but tidy, with DVD players and microwaves. The rooms also open onto an amphitheatre, which mainly functions as a beer garden but occasionally hosts concerts and Sunday-afternoon music sessions and barbecues. Rooms are cheapest Sunday to Thursday, and there's a good restaurant (mains $21 to $32).
