Located just 90 minutes from Melbourne and nestled amidst magnificent mountain ranges the Black Spur Inn or Narbethong Hotel as still some refer, has welcomed many visitors since it first opened its doors as a licensed hotel in 1863.
Some of the many travelers who stopped at the Inn included hopeful prospectors wanting to make their fortune in the gold diggings of Enochs Point, Woods Point, and Jamieson.
Over the years the timber industry developed and has also played a predominant part in the history and growth of the area
The Black Spur Inn has succumbed to two bushfires during its exciting history but managed to survive the great 1939 bushfire and acted as a refuge for the local community.
History repeated itself once again on Black Saturday 7th February 2009 when the Black Spur Inn was spared by the great firestorm that claimed many lives and destroyed large parts of the Murrindindi region.
