Situated in rural Tarago NSW since 1848 and named after Henry Lawsons famous story,
the Loaded Dog Hotel boasts a historic bar where patrons meet for drinks, live music and great food.

Watch the game on the plasma TV, sun yourself in the beer garden or catch one of the top country music acts who perform monthly to a full house.

The 'Dog' is extremely popular as a stopping point for motorcycle tours, vintage car clubs, cycling groups and skiers heading to the snowfields.

Situated only 40mins from Canberra in the heart of the Southern Tablelands you can reflect on days gone by in one of Australia's most sought after watering holes.
