Welcome to The Empire Hotel, located in the heart of Queenstown, Tasmania. The ‘Grand Old Lady of the West’ is a Tasmanian icon and has a prominent facade in the towns streetscape. Rich in history, dating back to the wealth of the mining era at the turn of the century.

Inside, guests are greeted by a beautifully handcrafted, National Trust listed, staircase made from Tasmanian Blackwood that is admired by visitors from all around the world. The restaurant is set in a large traditional dining room with a sense of the grandeur of the past.

"A great mix of travellers and locals. We had dinner and were blown away by
the awesome taste of local T Bone - the gravy was to die for!"
