The Croxton Park Hotel – on High Street on the border of Thornbury and Northcote – has been revived as a major venue and will open to the public later this week.

Decades since the golden era of pub rock when The Croxton hosted the likes of AC/DC, Skyhooks and Cold Chisel, the venue has has completely renovated their bandroom, artist spaces, bars and sound/lighting systems. The new era Croxton now has a huge bandroom with an unobstructed view of stage, two bars and a beer garden.
