Alstonville Federal Hotel 1901

Federal Hotel

A landmark building in Alstonville’s Main Street the hotel was originally at the junction of Ballina Road and Wardell Road. Built for Mr John Daley in 1901 the completed hotel was said to have thirty-four rooms. Sadly, Mr Daley had to sell the hotel in early 1902 because of ill health and he died in March 1906. In recent years the building and grounds have undergone many changes including the building of a retaining wall adjacent to the footpath. The building, the only two storey timber hotel in Ballina Shire, has been heritage listed on National Trust Register, the Register of the National Estate and the Ballina Local Environmental Plan. Stop for a drink and see if you can find original elements of this 100 year old pub.
