First Hotel License in the North West

The Victoria Hotel has been an iconic location of Roebourne since 1893 when the hotel, as it can still be seen today, was constructed replacing a small two-roomed thatched house. The public license granted to Simeon Müller on 1 January 1866 under the name Victoria Hotel was the first to be issued in the North West (the second was granted in 1867 for ‘Chinki’ – later the Roebourne Hotel).
