Ettamogah: Where To Go / Sightseeing
Ettamogah Pub Albury
Stop, shake off the dust and visit the iconic Ettamogah Pub. Based upon Ken Maynard's cartoons, the original Ettamogah Pub is situated 15 kilometres north of Albury on the Hume Highway, an easy drive from the city.
Creating a unique and enjoyable environment, visitors to the pub are welcome to explore the pub and its walls of cartoon or wander through the cartoon inspired gardens, complete with a tree jail and other zany Ettamogah scenes and characters.
The venue hosts live music events along with car park markets regularly (second, fourth and fifth Sunday of the month). Housing a bar, cafe and restaurant, the pub can cater for groups of all sizes with a range of souvenirs and merchandise available.
The word "ettamogah" is Aboriginal for "place of good drink". How very appropriate!
