About Us

The Railway Hotel is located in the historic township of Castlemaine within the goldfields area in central Victoria.

The Hotel dates back to the mid 1800’s and is one of a few surviving hotels from the bustling gold boom era.

The Hotel is located adjacent to the historic working railway station which services the Melbourne to Bendigo line as well at the Steam Trains from both Maldon and Melbourne.

The Hotel has a real vintage feel of a bygone era incorporating a locals bar, bistro and bar, outside verandah area and a newly introduced Private Beer Garden that is ideal for functions and parties of 60 people seated or 100 standing/casual.  This area features beautiful natural stone floors, brick and timber feature walls with its own toilet facilities.

A new wood fired pizza oven in the Beer Garden will feature some fun new tapas on the menu that can be tailored to suit.  The hotel will also stock your selection of beer and wine when you hire this unique area. We can provide staff to make sure your guests are treated to exceptional bar and meal service.

The “Railway” is a welcoming and inviting place for locals and travellers with an award winning chef preparing food sourced locally and a range of local beers and ciders on tap.

Our spirit wall hosts an inviting range of imported whiskey and bourbon choices and our wine range supports the vineyards of our region.
