About Us

The Blue Gum Hotel is an icon of the north shore. There has been a hotel on this site since 1884 with several name changes and two fires destroying the Hotels. The current building was completed in 1962.

We have recently undergone a transformation with major renovations taking place and new décor in our Bistro and Bar areas. The new look is fresh, brighter and adds to the old charm characteristics and atmosphere of the hotel.

This combined with our bistro’s outstanding menu and friendly service we are the place to be.

Open 7 days, come in for lunch or dinner, a drink after work, a family Sunday lunch or a night out with friends.

Located on the corner of Pacific Highway and Unwin Road, Waitara, we are only a few minutes walk from Waitara Train Station.

The Bistro

The Bistro is old world charm featuring period pictures dating back to 1884.

We are open 7 days a week and offer a range of modern Australian cuisine from traditional pub classics, succulent steaks and fresh seafood. Our menu represents trends and our “paddock to plate” belief. It is diverse and constantly changing to enable us to use the best produce to ensure the food is of the highest quality.

Main and Lounge Bar

The main and lounge bar is open seven days and easy for a quick drink after work, birthday celebrations, a casual lunch or a night out with friends, it is what you are looking for.
