Built in 1987 the Lake King Tavern is a beautiful rammed earth building with cathedral ceilings. The tavern is light and open, and features a straw ceiling and huge Oregon trusses. The bar boasts a great selection of beer and wine, and the restaurant has a full menu of Australian pub cuisine plus specials changing daily. In winter there is a large open fire roaring and leather couches to relax and get cosy upon. The motel is a separate building with modern, light and open units, and large clean bathrooms. The units are semi self catered with TV, fridge, toaster, and tea/coffee making facilities. Lake King is situated perfectly for a stopover on the drive from Perth to Esperance, but why not stay a little longer. To the North is Hyden and Wave Rock, to the South is Ravensthorpe/Hopetoun and the Fitzgerald River National Park and beaches. To the East is the Rabbit Proof Fence and the wildflowers of The Frank Hann and Peak Charles National Parks. West is the salt lake system the town is named after. The pub is a true oasis, with most guests commenting they can't believe this great building is located here.
But don't tell everybody - its one of WA's best kept secrets!!
