Walla Walla (LINK), Henty (LINK), (Henty Machinery Field Days) (LINK), Jingellic (LINK), Woomargama (LINK) Tarcutta (LINK) and Tumbarumba (LINK), and with 6 motels in Holbrook - see TripAdvisor (LINK) ( Holbrook Settlers Motel, Byer Fountain Motor Inn, Holbrook Town Centre Motor Inn, Jolly Swagman Motor Inn, Glendale Park Motel and of course our Holbrook Skye Motel) there are a large number of rooms on offer. We would hope you may choose to stay at HOLBROOK SKYE MOTEL.
Besides being a nice, small country town, Holbrook has been enhanced by the diversion of the Hume Highway with the opening of the Hume Freeway bypassing the town centre, which has managed to divert a great deal of highway traffic, which did not need to stop in the town, from the main street. This has made staying in Holbrook a much more pleasurable experience with nearly all the interstate transport trucks plus lots of cars not needing to travel our main street, as occurred before the bypass was constructed. Most traffic is now cars of local inhabitants plus lots of tourists as well, and without the constant heavy through traffic once experienced, tourists are finding stopping in town for a break, or saying overnight, a pleasant experience. It is now so easy to park and explore our local shops, plus explore some of our attractions such as our full size HMAS OTWAY Submarine Memorial (LINK), and our 1/5 scale model of Commander Holbrook's B11 submarine (LINK 1) and (LINK 2) which is in the park opposite Holbrook Skye Motel. There is also the Woolpack Inn Museum (LINK) well worth a visit with Grimwood's Store, plus the National Museum of Pottery (LINK) opposite. We have specialist shops catering to tourists such as Collectables, Craft and Embroidery, Gift and Clothing, Old Wares, Antiques like Glenross Antiques (LINK), Chemist, Newsagency, Supermarkets, Hardware plus Service Stations as well as a number of food outlets which are very popular such as Holbrook Bakery (LINK), with two separate locations. The Hotel Holbrook, Holbrook Returned Services Club, Riverina Hotel and offer services including good meals, which supplement meals available from other outlets such as Holbrook Chinese Restaurant Eat-in and Takeaway , Ginger n Olive Indian Italian Restaurant Eat-in and Takeaway, J and B's Gourmet Cafe, Holbrook Submarine Cafe (LINK), and Caltex Roadhouse Truck Stop, (open 24 hours with great meals our guests report) all renowned for tasty food.
Holbrook Air Park is just outside of town which has developed into a major ultralight aircraft establishment and home to Holbrook Ultralite Club (LINK) who make visitors very welcome.
Take the shortcut through HOLBROOK! Because the freeway loops around the town of Holbrook, it is actually shorter to travel through the town - about 800 metres less I have been told! Of course it is a slower option as our town area has a 50 km/h speed limit, but this makes a pleasant change from the hurley-burley of the Freeway.
