The quaint township of Trangie, with a population of 1000, is just 34km west of Narromine on the Mitchell Highway, and is home to some of the most authentic country pubs. These pubs all exude old world charm and date back to the early 1900’s. (Trangie Hotel est. 1883, Royal Hotel est. 1900, and Imperial Hotel est.1916). Stop and enjoy a counter lunch at these hotels and experience the real Aussie pub atmosphere.
