  • History & Heritage

The Empire Hotel in the mining town of Queenstown is a Tasmanian icon. Built in 1901 it dates back to the wealth of the mining era at the turn of the twentieth century.

It is the grand old lady of the West Coast and has a prominent facade in the town streetscape. Inside is a National Trust listed staircase made from Tasmanian blackwood. The raw timber was shipped to England, carved and sent back to Queenstown where it has enjoyed a rich history and is admired by all.

The restaurant is set in a large traditional dining room with a sense of the grandeur of the past. In cold conditions the open fire is lit for added warmth and ambience.

Accommodation is modest, clean and comfortable. Opposite is the meticulously restored ABT Railway that attracts visitors worldwide and runs to through spectacular rainforest to Strahan.

Queenstown is noted for its 'moonscape' a result of many years of mining. There is a local underground mine tour, a mining museum, a public golf course, and the area is popular for walking, fishing and four wheel drive tracks. Queenstown is a unique destination and the Empire a hotel not to be missed.
