Situated in the centre of beautiful Poowong in the South Gippsland region of Victoria, The Poowong Hotel is run by your hosts, Fiona and Ben, who welcome all with comforting food, good drink and hearty conversation.

Drop in for one of our events, for a hearty meal or just to stop and grab a refreshment as you're passing through - you'll be sure to feel welcome. We have plenty of parking and are located right in the middle of town, making us very easy to find.

We pride ourselves on our service, and hope once you've visited you'll return again and again. Finalists in the AHA State Awards for Excellence, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
