Manenti Quinlan & Associates, in conjunction with John Hannigan Real Estate Services, have listed the renowned, Ettamogah Pub, Albury.

The Australian icon is located off the Hume Highway, just 16 kilometres north of Albury on a 4.81ha site.

The original creator of the Ettamogah Pub was Ken Maynard who started drawing images of the Ettamogah Pub in 1959.

It was made famous through his regular cartoons in The Australasian Post. The Ettamogah Mob cartoons, an iconic series of weekly cartoons, were published in the national magazine for nearly 50 years.

As a boy Ken would cycle around a water hole called Ettamogah, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘place of good drink’. This struck Ken as an ideal name for a pub and hence the infamous Ettamogah cartoons were born.
