The Border Inn Hotel

The Border Inn Freehold is for sale on a walk-in-walk-out basis. So a purchaser can restart the previously successful and profitable hotel which has been renovated and re-fitted to a high and compliant level.

Supporting figures indicate that 2 working owners could earn $200,000 P.A plus, plus, plus!

What do you get for the $350,000 freehold price?

  • The ability to run the hotel with all the up-to-date plant and equipment – updated kitchen etc. – i.e. run a great, profitable business
  • Own a comfortable, spacious 2/3 bedroom home, all well-appointed in a great rural setting
  • Have a well-maintained accommodation business option which sleeps up to 10 people
  • Capitalise on the travelling public via the non-powered camping sites on land title

It all sounds too good to be true for the price, but for the right buyers it presents a truly wonderful opportunity to live in a picturesque township setting in a sound, well-maintained building and be your own boss. But more than anything else, be part of a welcoming community of locals that share and work in the surrounding countryside.

Situated on the Wimmera Highway in Apsley and close to many Victorian and South Australian attractions, The Border Inn is an independent boutique hotel and one of the oldest hotels in Victoria. The Border Inn is currently owned by 12 local farming families who purchased the business in 2014 to ensure the community ‘hub’ could be re-established and maintained in the area. They upgraded the facilities and have built a loyal following amongst locals and travellers alike. 

It is time now, for new custodian(s) to take hold of the The Border Inn, build on the successes to date and make their mark as publicans in this beautiful region. A keen operator will note the clear opportunities to take this once successful enterprise to the next level. There is scope to build on the hospitality packages, seasonal events and bed and breakfast offerings while being sure of loyal and enthusiastic support from the locals and shareholders.



Apsley Community


Supporting and being part of the local community is something the owners of The Border Inn are extremely proud of. If you love being a-part of a tight knit community and want that friendly, personal, country life that we all talk and dream about, then do not let this opportunity pass you by.

The town of Apsley is well serviced with a primary school, post office and sporting clubs including golf, horse racing, football and netball. The nearby towns of Edenhope and Naracoorte offering more variety and most major services. World class tourism attractions like the Naracoorte Caves, Mount Arapiles and Coonawarra wine region draws many travellers as well as promising local entertainment. These attractions, alongside the natural wildlife and wetlands and a plethora of sporting teams and community groups will ensure a well-rounded lifestyle. 

Country & Community Focused

With warm and cosy fireplaces for those colder days and a spacious and open al fresco / courtyard garden with children’s’ cubby house and plenty of play space, tables and chairs. A separate, elegant function room, catering for up to 50 people, presents options for business events and special occasions.
