Welcome to Lascelles

Lascelles was named after the "Father of the Mallee", Edward Harewood Lascelles and became a popular staging post on the trek to Mildura during the early days of the settlement of the Mallee.

Lascelles is the abode of the renowned Minapre Hotel, built in 1926 after the original Hotel was destroyed by fire. This grand county pub provides a meeting place for the small township of Lascelles and the farming region beyond and is famous for its icy cold beer.


The Wathe Flora & Fauna Reserve is one of the few areas where the endangered Malleefowl can be seen in the wild.


The Stockmans Hut Gallery, known for hosting some of Australia’s best corrugated iron sculptures and rural inspired paintings, is conveniently located on the Sunraysia Highway, adjacent to the historic Minapre Hotel. Hosts and artists, Phil and Marlene Rigg provide guided tours and share insight into the artwork that makes the Stockmans Hut so unique.
