Overland Corner Attractions

Overland Corner Hotel

Bushrangers, overlanders, ghosts and a beer. The Overland Corner Hotel has certainly lived an interesting life since it was built in 1859. One of the oldest buildings in the Riverland this hotel's history includes being visited by bushranger Captain Moonlight and his gang (who are alleged to have locked the lone police constable in a cell, shod their horses using government gear and then retired to the hotel for refreshment); been a major camping and refreshment point for overlanders on their journey from New South Wales to Adelaide; was a stagecoach post for Cobb and Co and today is still a great place for a beer. Oh and don't forget to ask the staff about the ghost.
