A mining town with a population of “about 14” on the banks of the Goulburn River is looking for someone new to run their cherished pub.

The Woods Point watering hole at 22 Bridge St is on the market with a $550,000-$595,000 price guide.

Harcourts Mansfield agent Dean Shipley said the Commercial Hotel was an important landmark for the tiny town, which he estimated had about 14 residents.

The Commercial Hotel in Woods Point is for sale.

The typical Aussie pub is a local landmark.

“There are two mines that operate not far from there and the miners keep the pub going,” Mr Shipley said.

“But there’s also a huge tourist population, which keeps it going over Christmas and the holidays. It’s the only place for miles around where you can get a beer.”

He called the listing a “typical Australian pub”, with “no craft beer, pineapple beer or raspberry beer” available.

It’s the only pub in the mining town.

There’s only one tap behind the bar.

The town has a tiny population.

“There is only one tap behind the bar and it only serves beer … I’m pretty sure it’s Carlton Draught,” Mr Shipley said.

“The owner deliberately didn’t put any more taps in, because if you give people too much choice it takes up too much time.”

The 1940s country pub also includes 12 rooms of accommodation, a beer garden, breakfast lounge and kitchen.

Everything inside is part of the package.
