Vulcan hotel is a survivor continuously operating for over 140 years. There have been some glitches yet the heritage pub is drawing a pint. Complete with a resident ghost in room one. Rose, a former prostitute, was strangled in the hotel. It is not clear if the perpetrator was ever caught. With casual seating outside the main entrance it is a perfect spot for people watching. The pub serves gourmet pies, coffee and ice cream for the kids.
Who needs a museum when the entire town is a living homage to the story of gold fever and the prospecting narratives of many who trudged through the alpine landscape in search of gold. There are several heritage buildings from a post office, church and school. The townscape is an easy stroll from the pub.
