The entertainment and social hub of the Monaro Snowy region. Opened in winter 1890 as a coach inn, the heritage listed two-story landmark with more than 35 rooms has miraculously survived five fires, due on more than one occasion, to bucket-wielding drinkers desperate to prevent the heart of their town being reduced to ashes. One wall inside the bar is decked out in surfing ephemera, which on first glance might seem out of place given Nimmitabel is closer to the nation's premier snowfields than our surf beaches. However, in the 1960s and '70s, the Federal was a popular drinking hole for surfers in their Kombi vans and Beetles on the way to the south coast. According to local lore, Peter Garrett would call in early in the morning for a liquid breakfast before tackling the hairpins of Brown Mountain. But the Midnight Oil frontman isn't the only celebrity to have sampled the Federal's hospitality. The list reads like an A to Z of leaders in their fields, including poet Banjo Patterson, author Miles Franklin, historian Manning Clark, artist Brett Whiteley, politicians Bob Hawke & Billy Hughes and entertainers including Tex Morton, Chad Morgan and Suzi Quatro.
