Ninth property joins expanding NSW outback tourism stable

Outback NSW tourism operator, Out of the Ordinary Outback, launched in 2016, has expanded its portfolio of tourism and leisure assets with the purchase of its ninth property – The Alma Hotel in South Broken Hill.

Out of the Ordinary Outback has begun refurbishing the heritage-listed Alma Hotel, built in the late 1800s, with the aim of making the family-friendly pub in Hebbard St a hub of leisure and entertainment in the area.

The dining room has been refreshed and a sports bar added while over the next three months Out of the Ordinary Outback will develop a new family-friendly beer garden for locals and travellers alike to enjoy.

While the Alma does not offer accommodation, eat in and take-away meals have been introduced for lunch and dinner, serving quality pub food with kid’s options available. Live music is also on offer on Sunday nights.

To mark the hotel’s new lease of life, Out of the Ordinary Outback is offering guests a special meal deal – buy a main meal at the Alma Hotel’s new bistro and get the second for half price.

Out of the Ordinary Outback owner, Scott Smith, said the addition of The Alma Hotel to the company’s portfolio would complement its other combination of offerings across far west NSW, while the revitalisation of the hotel would enhance its appeal to locals and travellers alike. “We hope the Alma Hotel will become a popular and intrinsic part of Broken Hill’s social, leisure, entertainment and dining scene and encourage the locals to come together and enjoy good food, refreshing beverages and great company.”

The Alma Hotel is open from 10am to midnight daily. Call the Alma Hotel on 08 8087 3260 or visit
