How we came to be community run

The hotel is now leased by "The Town" under the umbrella of the long established and hard working Cockburn Progress association.


Owner, Ryan didn't what to loose his connection with his Cockburn roots and the town didn't want to see another business gone. So in a unique and evolving way the lease agreement was made. Aafter Licence applications approval and beginning renovations it was time to get back to business.

At a nice steady pace.

We would love to meet you and welcome back old friends to our tiny outback town. Why not stay the night and enjoy our sensational sunsets and sunrises over the beautiful outback landscape, not to mention our clear nights ablaze with stars.


Established in 1889 the Coburn hotel is the first and last hotel in South Australia on the New South Wales border travelling along the Barrier Highway.


We are 50km west of Broken Hill and 470km north east of Adelaide in the border town of Cockburn. Just turn right off the Barrier Highway coming from Broken Hill and left coming from Adelaide and join us for our outback hospitality, a cold beer or a cup of coffee and a snack and have a yarn.
