    • Nick,
      Not sure what the status of the rodeo ground is. The idea of putting in facilities there fell through a couple of years ago. You could contact the local council or the rodeo organisation. The pub is closed as of April 2019.

      • I’ve just spoken with the President of the Marrabel Rodeo Club Inc.
        Walkers can stay at the Rodeo grounds where there are toilet facilities and water.
        There is a small fee involved as well ( I don’t know how much; I’ll find out closer to the date of our walk).

        • Nick,
          That’s good news. Thanks for the update as we weren’t sure quite what the status was. Can you let us know the fee, in due course.

  1. Just letting everyone know in case there is any confusion, but there is no accomodation in the hotel at Marrabel, and hasn’t been since renovations of the bar in the 1930’s!

    The Publican is very nice though, and walkers are allowed to camp across the road at the Marrabel Rodeo Grounds, where there are toilets and water.

    If you are trying to thru-hike this section, its about 52km from Marschalls Hut to Huppatz Hut. Marrable isn’t on the trail-its about 1km north of it. There is no other accomodation, however if you contact the Hotel they can probably put you onto landowners along the trail that can let you camp on their land. 52km is pushing it for even an elite walker in one day.

    The hotel is great though and the patronage very friendly! We reccomend a stop, a few beers and the big chicken parmagianas!
