Bredbo, NSW

Bredbo evolved as a village to support squatters’ runs established as Bredbow and Bridbot between 1848 to 1850. The Bredbo area prospered in the midst of the Monaro’s Marino country and Bredbo was proclaimed a village in 1888. Bredbo became a bustling village with several shops servicing local residents and graziers.

The village boasts a number of historic buildings one of which is the Bredbo Inn. This was the original stagecoach stop on the way to the South Coast or Snowy Mountains and later as a stop for railway travelers.

Gold was discovered in the area in the late 1800’s and a field was proclaimed along the Bredbo River which was worked until 1921. In the 1930’s a geological survey was undertaken and a mine opened and operated until 1942.

Today there are several lovely shops in the small township. The Bredbo Cottage boasts the finest selection of imported Christmas decorations. The Bredbo Pizzeria whose wood fired pizzas are unequaled for taste and flavor which can be enjoyed overlooking Settin Estate vineyards. The Bredbo Pancake Parlour once the General Store has tasty crepes, pancakes and hotcakes.
