Your favourite inner northern dive bar where “the atmosphere’s so thick you could kiss it”*. A home to live music and other entertainment 6 nights a week, Swamplands Bar has hosted many high profile local and touring acts over the years. The bar also prides itself on supporting up and coming acts and giving them a space to launch from. Folk, rock, punk, metal, blue grass, old timey, country, singer-songwriter, Americana, American Gothic Australian Gothic, indie, alternative, shoe gaze, soul, DJ electronic, non-DJ electronic and just “spooky”…you name it all have graced The Swamp. The bar also stages spoken word, ongoing film nights where acts play live to original and old films, trivia and comedy.

The bar doesn’t charge any function hire fees. The new Swamp Kitchen is super affordable with a menu of very tasty pub food including burgers, ribs, loaded fries and deep fried Tim Tams! There are also vegetarian options. Stay tuned for Alligator Wine…
