Our Story ...

The Willow Tree Inn was built in 1913 and purchased by Hanna Pastoral Group Pty Limited in 2009.  The redevelopment of the hotel, restaurant and bistro began in June 2010 and was completed just five months later in November 2010 by a team of excellent local trades people. 

Darryl Lock, who is an avid historian, was the ideal architect to use on the redevelopment of the Willow Tree Inn.  Darryl was also the architect responsible for the renovation and extensions to the 1922 built homestead at Colly Creek two years prior. 

Pressed metal ceilings in the old Inn were either repaired or replaced with a similar product, and the external weatherboard walls were replaced with weatherboards with exactly the same profile as the original building.  A large fireplace and chimney were constructed in The Grain Store function room and, once again, a traditional design was maintained using feature red bricks recycled from the original hotel.  All the timber floors were replaced with 100-year old recycled Ironbark floorboards due to termite damage to the original bearers and joists. This is also true of less prominent features such as the plaster wall vents which were replaced with identical products reproduced by the original manufacturers based in Tamworth.

The Willow Tree Inn offers luxury accommodation in the form of Cottage 24 which comprises two deluxe rooms with ensuite and two luxurious suites with ensuites, four spacious and stylishly furnished private deluxe King Lodges, overlooking the landscaped gardens and four well-appointed Hotel Suites featuring Queen or Double sized beds. Plus our fully refurbished pub cottage located next door to the Inn, offering various room configurations with separate library and kitchen facilities. The Willow Tree Inn has a total of 16 rooms on site and can accommodate up to 34 guests.
