At the heart of the town sits the Marlo Hotel, perched on the hill, overlooking the estuaries and entrance. The Marlo Hotel, established in 1886, has been operating for over 120 years, offering accommodation, private function areas, good food, cold beverages, clean ocean air and a friendly pub atmosphere.
The first settler to occupy the Marlo township area was James Stirling around the year 1875. He built a bark hut on the bluff that had two rooms, bark walls, earthen floors and a shingle roof. By 1884, this structure had expanded to a 9 roomed accommodation house and in 1886 became the Marlo Hotel when a liquor license was granted.
Marlo Hotel offers Sydney Rock Oysters supplied by Broadwater Oysters, Pambula Lake. Samphire / Sea Asparagus and Karkala (beach banana) is cultivated and harvested from across the river at Snowy River Station in an irrigated propagation area. Award winning wines from the Tambo Winery, East Gippsland’s first 5 star winery, are also available.
