The chance to own a slice of Dumbleyung’s rich history is up for grabs. The 110-year-old Grand Olde’ Dumbleyung Inn, the place where Donald Campbell announced to the world his record-breaking feat, is up for sale as pub owner Peter Bedford and his partner, Neville, look to move on after years at the helm. The Inn, built in 1911, has undergone a facelift since the two acquired the property four years ago. Mr Bedford said they had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on improving and rebranding the ageing infrastructure. The outside balustrade and veranda has been redeckedto resemble the original pictures visuals of the facility as well as make it safer, while the roof has been repaired, and electrical wiring and gutters have been replaced. The inside of the hotel has been refreshed, with a Campbell tribute wall. They have reopened the pub from 11am for seven days a week to increase business and provided free camping space to tourists. Mr Bedford said the venue had survived three floods and 30 years of neglect but was still thriving as a pub and 12-bedroom hotel. While many of his plans remained unfinished, such as his vision for a mural on the west side of the building, he said he hoped the next owner would finish what he had started. “I still say in a small country town the hotel is the most important part,” he said. “It is a neutral ground and it is a meeting place, it is an integral part of the community.” Mr Bedford said as much as he would like to finish off the job, the long hours and the lack of workers because of COVID-19 travel restrictions had made it too hard for them. “If a young couple come in and take it on, it would help with numbers and they would run this place pretty sweet,” he said. Broker Phil Mulcahy said the “incredible” changes to the Inn since 2017 were a credit to Mr Bedford. “It was an absolute train wreck when he bought it...he has poured his absolute heart and soul into it as well as a fortune,” he said.
