Details

Description

The Empire Hotel in the mining town of Queenstown is a Tasmanian icon. Built in 1901 it dates back to the wealth of the mining era at the turn of the 20th Century. It is the grand old lady of the West Coast and has a prominent facade in the town streetscape. Inside is a National Trust listed staircase made from Tasmanian Blackwood. The raw timber was shipped to England, carved and sent back to Queenstown where it has enjoyed a rich history and is admired by all. The restaurant is set in a large traditional dining room with a sense of the grandeur of the past. In cold conditions the open fire is lit for added warmth and ambiance. Accommodation is modest, clean and comfortable. Opposite is the meticulously restored Abt Railway that attracts visitors worldwide and runs through spectacular rainforest to Strahan.
