Description

Originally set up as a watering hole for drovers and overlanders operating between New South Wales and the Adelaide Colony, it also served as a temporary camping ground for steamers passing through on the River Murray, which flows a mere 600ft from the hotel. The historic building was erected in 1859, and since that time has served as a staging point, a general store, a police station and even the local Post Office. In 1965, the building was purchased by the National Trust of South Australia and, with the aid of locally raised and commonwealth funding, the fossilized limestone building was completely restored. It now stands as a beacon of history in the Riverland, and is the oldest structure to remain standing in the area. Today, the Overland Corner operates as a hotel, serving some of the finest cuisine in the Riverland amongst the beautiful backdrop and serene settings of Overland Corner. Free camping is available in a gravel area near the pub. Toilets are also available after hours in council toilet block

Great little stop just across the SA/Vic border. Great meals & drinks - extensive range of sour beers - yum! Camped out the back for free.

Great place to overnight. The public toilets beside the pub are currently permanently closed.

Love the old historic pub with its very thick walls etc. It apparently is the first and last standing building in the area. Great atmosphere and delicious food and great wayside stop
