Ray White Commercial has been appointed to sell the Bark Tree Hotel and surrounding property, commonly known as the Nerriga Pub.

The property will go under the hammer on November 21.

It comprises a fully renovated bar area, as well as a dining room and full commercial kitchen, which caters for lunches seven days a week and evening meals Friday through Sunday.

The business is also the local post office as well as LPG provider.

In 1840, James Larmer surveyed a village site and a route over the mountains from Nerriga to Vincentia.

It was intended that this pass, known as The Wool Road would allow movement of agricultural produce to a port on Jervis Bay from the Braidwood and Goulburn districts.

The road was completed in 1841, a distance of approximately 60km.

The discovery of alluvial gold on the Shoalhaven River in 1851 led to increased interest in the area around Nerriga, and the town began to grow, with the Commercial Hotel opening for business sometime around 1864.

The auction will be held at Gabby’s Function Centre Berry on from 6pm.
