Centrally located at Thornton between historical Alexandra, the mountains of Marysville and the deep blue waters of Lake Eildon is the locally owned and operated Rubicon Hotel Motel.
First opened in 1868 the Rubicon Hotel was known as one of the largest hotels in rural Victoria, having a capacity to accommodate 130 people.
Taking over in mid-2013 with over 40 years’ experience combined under their belts, Darren and Shereen Thomas have given the pub an open, relaxed, and fun family feel. The pub is the community hub of the town, where locals and their families can get together.
The focus isn’t merely on the locals though, as the hotel-motel complex is ideally situated for visitors to take advantage of everything the area has to offer. It is right in the middle of some of the most beautiful scenery Victoria has to offer and is the ideal jumping off spot for fly fishing, four wheel driving, motor bike touring, water sports, snow sports, wineries, and some great restaurants, not to mention the hotel’s own restaurant with its diverse menu with ingredients sourced locally.
Open from 12pm our bistro caters for all, with locally sourced fresh ingredients and specials to entice all tastes. Our recently refined menu includes vegetarian and gluten free options, as well as a seniors menu and children’s menu.
