Top Pub FOR A Country Welcome WITH tap beer & hearty meals
The Top Pub has been a favourite watering hole for more than 150 years! Locals and travellers love the convenience and genuine locally owned and ran pub.
At 970m above sea level, the fires are burning nearly all year round at night! With the choice of 8 tap beers, including Deepwater Brewery, and simple hearty meals you can be sure of a country welcome the moment you step inside.
Australia's first mental health pub?
The moment you enter our pub, you sense there's something different about it. We achieved our goal in making the place feel like you've stepped into a welcoming home by our eclectic furniture and art choices.
Feeling safe is the first ingredient for people wanting to have a chat. There’s no such thing as strangers at ours, just new friends on both sides of the bar.
The Top Pub's staffing criteria commences with one essential element. Kindness. Kindness and listening go hand in hand.
We're not offering counselling or any form of professional help, we're offering to hold space and listen.
Wandering around our pub, you'll notice there's an interesting collection of art pieces, all designed to help people feel comfortable. Even our main sign features a yellow ribbon.
It’s amazing how uplifting a 5 min chat and a hug can be.

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride
RIDING DAPPER FOR A CAUSE – Sunday, May 19th, 2024.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride unites classic and vintage styled motorcycle riders from all over the world to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia, by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of TV Show Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way of connecting niche motorcycle enthusiasts and communities while raising funds to support the men in our lives.
