The Gol Gol Hotel
This historic country pub was first licensed in 1877 and served as a watering hole and stopover in the days of Cobb & Co. Just five minutes from Mildura over the bridge into New South Wales, it enjoys one of the best views of the Murray River. Houseboats can tie up at the hotel’s mooring and guests can walk up the grassy slopes to dine on the pub’s great-value country fare, choosing from the standard bar menu or à la carte bistro cuisine. Usual suspects include salt-and-pepper squid, garlic prawns and, in winter, lamb korma puffs. Main courses might be grain-fed porterhouse, chicken parmigiana or crumbed breast of Kulkyne chicken stuffed with mushrooms, onion, bacon and cheese, topped with hollandaise sauce.
