The White Hart Hotel was a hotel in Waubra, Victoria, <1863-1938>.

Background[edit | edit source]

Site[edit | edit source]

The hotel was at "The Springs", the original name for Waubra.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The hotel was offered for sale in January 1865:

THURSDAY, 5th JANUARY. IMPORTANT SALE. By order of the Mortgagees. The White Hart Hotel, Springs, Mount Bolton. J. S. CARVER has received instructions from the Mortgagees to sell by auction, on the premises, the White Hart Hotel, at the Springs, Mount Bolton, on Thursday, 5th January, 1865, at one o'clock, THE WHITE HART HOTEL. Containing bar, bar parlor, dining and billiard room, four bedrooms, and attached is a retail and wholesale store. The outbuildings consist of kitchen and servants' rooms, and the stabling, coach house, and other offices are complete. The buildings are principally of brick, substantially built, and are erected on an allotment of land comprising one acre, securely fenced. The Auctioneer would wish to draw the attention of small capitalists to this sale, as it offers an opportunity for the investment of money, where a good business may be formed, that seldom occurs, it being in the midst of a splendid agricultural district. The terms will be announced at the sale.[2]

The hotel did not sell at auction and a couple of weeks later, J. S. Carver placed this advertisment:

WHITE HART HOTEL, SPRINGS, MOUNT BOLTON. THE above is for Sale, Cheap. Apply to Mr J. S. CARVER, Auctioneer, Ballarat.[3]

In January 1938 the publican was charged:

Margaret Ann Fitzgerald, licensee of the White Hart Hotel, Waubra, was fined £2 for having disposed of liquor during prohibited hours, and four persons found on the premises were each fined £ 1.[4]


Community Involvement[edit | edit source]

  • In December 1902 Mr. M. Ryan, standing for the seat of Windermere, used the hotel for a political meeting.[5]
