Mundaring Weir Hotel

Hotel in Mundaring

Overlooking the weir, this red-brick 1898 pub oozes ramshackle character. Motel-style rooms are simple but tidy, each with an open fire (firewood $25). The rooms open onto a grassy amphitheatre, which mainly functions as a beer garden but occasionally hosts concerts and Sunday-afternoon music sessions. Time your visit with the world-famous-in-Mundaring lamb spit, also on Sunday afternoons.

Meals in the pub restaurant range from $18 to $34 (the Sunday lamb spit is $21.50 per person).
