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. Currently only operating 4 days a week, with a restricted menu, a keen operator will note the clear opportunities to take this already 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.
