The hotel is very nice. I had a great schnitzel for only $12. They seem to have one well priced special every weeknight. The rest of the menu however seems not so well priced. So I would go for the special. Probably not for anything...More

Situated in the heart of the thriving country town of Queanbeyan, The Tourist Hotel is steeped in tradition. Only minutes from Canberra, Queanbeyan boasts country living with city benefits which the Tourist aims to reflect in it's dedication to our locals. New owners in 2009 brought a new approach to the Tourist Hotel; including major refurbishments and brand new promotions. Michael and Nicole Gawthrop have established a community atmosphere within the pub, whilst catering for patrons of all ages. Nowadays, The Tourist is one of Queanbeyan's premier hospitality venues offering a complete entertainment package. The Bistro has now extended out into our beautifully refurbished Back Bar where you can enjoy a few drinks in the company of friends. Throughout the hotel, patrons are offered individual bar areas to suit the needs of everyone. Enjoy our Sports Bar where the pace is fast. Watch the races live on SKY channel next to the TAB or see all the latest sporting events on the Big Screens with FOXTEL. Our new Back Bar allows you to unwind in a relaxed atmosphere or have a drink in our Beer Garden which is perfect on a sunny day where heaters have been installed for winter comfort. Stay up to date with the latest events by following us on Facebook. Whatever the occasion come in and see what's happening at the Tourist Hotel.
