Mareeba’s best pub…

This grand old venue has gone by a few different names over the years including Dunlops, The Highlander, and the Peninsula Pub, but no one can argue it has never looked and felt so good. Purchased by new owners in 2015, The Gateway Hotel has undergone extensive renovations, careful to retain the character and charm of a classic Queensland country pub. It is proud of its rural heritage, but blends in modern sophistication and stylish furnishings, to create the ultimate venue.

The vision is to provide Mareeba residents with a pub they’re proud to call their local, and visitors with a venue that has the stylings of a big city hotel and the character and charm of a country pub. What can you expect to find?

Cold beers, great entertainment, an extensive selection of beverages, air-conditioned with modern chairs, tables, fixtures, and fittings. Service with a smile is a given and it’s a great place to catch up with mates, friends, and family. There’s something here for everyone, from the pokies and gaming to three family-friendly kids rooms, beer garden, funky bar and more.

Mareeba’s best pub proudly occupies the prime position at 123 Byrnes Street Mareeba, The Gateway Hotel is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am and from 11 am on Sundays. Features and benefits include bars, pokies, beer garden, a restaurant, and dedicated kids area, CashConnect ATM, a drive-through bottle shop and more.
