Round Hill Hotel


Some time before 1874, Aneurin Heriot sold Ed Culnane allotments numbers nine and ten, section 32 in the Morven Township, for just 20 pounds. This was the land on which the Round Hill Hotel now stands.

It was first named the Bridge Hotel and the year that the Hotel first started trading is not known. The year 1868 has been mentioned but not verified. The name was changed to Round Hill Hotel around 1959 after it left the hands of the O'Donoghue family.

On visiting Round Hill Hotel today, you can view interesting old photographs and information relating to the history of Morven as well as the original Cobb and Co stables.

Enjoy an ice cold beverage or something from the bistro menu. Enjoy regular live music and great food specials regularly. See the website for what's on.

Cobb and Co Stables Morven


Experience the Cobb and Co way, take an easier trip back in time when the coach rolled over flat terrain and tranquil creeks.

Cobb and Co 'Changing Stations' were established by 1877. The route for the run was Wagga Wagga, Cookardinia, Morven, Gerogery and Albury, via Magloplah. Changing stations were set up where the horses could be changed and passengers could take a break.

The Cobb and Co Stables at Morven are situated beside the historic Round Hill Hotel, dating back to the 1850s when the hotel was a Cobb and Co Station.

The decline of Cobb and Co came with the arrival of the Railway line through nearby Culcairn, and today the stables stand as a reminder of times gone past.

Headlie Taylor Header and Blacksmiths Shop


Henty is known as the 'Home of the Header' due to agricultural innovations that revolutionised world agriculture. In 1914, a local farmer, Mr Headlie Taylor invented the header harvester which completely revolutionised the grain industry around the world.

In 2009, an authentic header harvester and blacksmiths shop were relocated to Bicentennial Park, Olympic Highway.

Headlie Taylor Header and Blacksmiths Shop is open everyday, and viewable at all hours. Guided tours inside the blacksmith shop are available by appointment.

Henty Golf Course


Improvements have been made to the course, with three bridges built to facilitate the movement of golf carts. The club was presented with two powered golf carts by the NSW Golf Foundation in 2006. A heavier bridge was built over the dam to allow the tractor to cross.

The big change to the course has been the sale of 7.33 acres of the north-western corner to Vitality Life for the Sweetwater Retirement Village. The sale forced the relocation of the seventh green, the work done with a working bee and six trucks bringing in fill to build up the green. The 10th, 17th and 18th fairways vanished and had to be incorporated within the rest of the course with some of the holes being shortened and others lengthened.

The 18 hole sand green golf course is regarded as being one of the best in terms of being very well maintained. The season runs from April through to September. New members and visitors are always welcome.

Cookardinia: Events

Back to Holbrook Fly-in


Holbrook Ultralight Club (HULC) will host the annual Back to Holbrook Fly-in on Saturday and Sunday of the Easter weekend 2018.

Why Back to Holbrook? Holbrook airfield was the venue, and HULC was the host, for the first three AUF (now RA-Aus) national ultralight fly-ins which went on to become, up until recently, the annual NatFly. The first of these national ultralight fly-ins was held at Easter in 1990.
