Join us on the evening of Friday the 21st of December for a big night.
Spin for the Bushranger must go off tonight, so one of you will be walking away from our pub that night with a smile from ear to ear and over $5000 in your pocket-Happy Christmas!

It is also the night that our Christmas Hamper has to be won and with all those goodies you wont need Santa to come down your chimney this year!

And if that wasnt enough come and join our friendly team and locals to take part in our meat raffles at 7.30pm and win a Christmas Ham!


2013 has been and (nearly) gone so quickly, so much has happened this year at Bushrangers Bar and all for the good!
The Good Pub Food Guide for 2013 is out this Saturday and our restaurant has  received a much coveted Schooner Award which our team are all very proud of. We are up there with the States top rating pubs as reviewed by the Good Pub Food Guide Team.

The adventures of "Thursty" our resident Camel keep on coming so keep an eye on facebook to find out what hes been up to, its maybe time for him to relax and enjoy the festive season as we have been working him hard recently with so many deliveries coming in for christmas!

Our Thirsty Camel Humpers have been getting some great deals in the last couple of months and theres still more to come-next week you can buy a 700ml Johnnie Walker for only $24.98!  Dont think Dans can beat that price!

So join us for the next couple of Fridays nights as the spin for the bushranger jackpot is over $5000 and must be won before Christmas Day-you have been warned! Christmas Ham raffles at 7.30pm and the big cash draw is at 7.45pm.

Last night Bob Shorten from the Largs/Bolwarra Bushfire Brigade came down to our hotel to be presented with a cheque for $3000.

This money was raised at the Largs Village Spring Ball which is an annual event organised by Vicki and Bruce Woods and the team at Bushrangers.

We would like to give a massive thanks to all who attended the ball this year and helped to raise this phenomenal amount of cash.  We are also happy to give it straight back to our local community by aiding one of our most essential and necessary organisations in Largs and Bolwarra!

Check out Friday the 7th Decembers Maitland Mercury for the full story and a photo of our managers Melissa and Debbie handing over the cheque to Bob.

Brenda Clouten Art Prize Announcement Soon

will be made on Friday 10 August 6PM - 7.30PM. 

  Drinks and hors d'oeuvres from 6PM 

RSVP Essential by 3 August. 

Brenda Clouten Memorial Award

Brenda was 60 when she passed away of breast cancer after first being diagnosed in June 1999. After chemo and treatment she had the all clear until June 2001 when we were told it was to be terminal. She soldiered on for another 3 years. Brenda had lived in the Maitland area for more than 25 years and spent the last 16 years at Largs. Brenda was an amazing person always seeing the good in everyone, putting others before herself. Even at her sickest moments she would always be concerned ‘how you were’. She derived a lot of pleasure from the arts. She loved  ballet, musicals, theatre and all things arty. She loved the good things in life and always lived for the moment. The scholarship is our way of creating a lasting memorial that will give benefit to a young, upcoming talent in the hunter area and keep her alive in our hearts. Vicki and Bruce Woods (scholarship founders)
The winner will be offered up to 15.8 running metres of wall space or up to 46.8 square metres of floor space.
Michael Randall, Pandora, 2009, digital print from film negative, 112 x 112 cm. Michael was the winner of the 2009 Brenda Clouten Memorial Scholarship for a young achiever in visual arts.

Bushranger Thunderbolt In The News

The last professional bushranger in New South Wales, was Captain Thunderbolt. And now he looks set to join his infamous colleague, Ben Hall, on the State Heritage Register. 

Thunderbolt held up mail coaches and inns in the Upper Hunter and New England regions in the 1860s.
The Heritage Council has recommended four sites linked to Thunderbolt, whose real name was Fred Ward, should be given maximum protection.
