About The Empire Hotel Gympie



Who We Are

Our history goes back more than 150 years. There’s a lot we have to live up to. But one visit and you’ll see how we do it.

Our clean décor and combination of refreshing beverages, excellent meals and unending entertainment will have you in doubt that The Empire continues to be Gympie’s finest.

If you want to be sleep safe and secure in the heart of downtown Gympie, you’ll find that our accommodation is exceptional value. Air conditioned. Free Wi-Fi and TV so you can watch the game without interruption.

Enjoy a meal with friends and family at The Empire Hotel and you’ll see—as Gympie locals will attest—why our chef is the subject of local reverence. You need only to read our customer reviews to see that dining at The Empire is mouthwatering event that consistently surpasses expectations.

The Empire is the preferred rendezvous point in Gympie for locals and visitors. The relaxed atmosphere in our hotel is equally conducive to a quiet beverage, as it is for more animated get-togethers.
We have a varied program of entertainment in the evening that will keep you busy chasing cash prizes, vouchers, meat trays, and more. Thursday night is Tradies Night with lots of music and a welcome touch of femininity.

The Empire Hotel Gympie is a much-loved venue—so much so, we regularly hire out rooms to host private events and celebrations. This works a treat, thanks to the suitability of our venue and also because our staff help relieve the stress of organising everything.

Choosing The Empire makes it easy for you, not only to stage a successful event but also to have the free time to enjoy it yourself.

Please call for more information.


Our History

The Empire Hotel has been standing proudly in Mary Street for the past 147 years.
Starting life as the Newmarket Hotel, it was rebuilt in 1872 as the Miners Arms until it was changed to the Empire Hotel around the time of the First World War.
Since then, this public house has witnessed the changing face of Gympie, while remaining virtually unchanged.
