Welcome to The Old Colony Inn

One of the town’s oldest registered properties. This historic home began life in 1815 as a cellar for storage of hops and was later extended with a mud brick lower floor. The convict brick upper floor was added in 1835 which now proudly houses our colonial accommodation.

The original land grant was to John S Hampton and William Courtney who were overseers of the convict stores, two of our suites have been named in their honor to acknowledge the part they played in the history of New Norfolk.

New Norfolk was founded to receive the convicts and free settlers who arrived on the Lady Nelson from the penal colony of Norfolk Island when the penal colony closed on the 29th of November 1807.
