The Mount Inn, Mt Moriac, Victoria

The Mount Inn, Moriac, Victoria (formely known as the Moriac Pub)

Moriac is a rural town in Victoria, Australia, located approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Geelong. It forms part of the Surf Coast Shire. At the 2006 census, Moriac had a population of 594.

The town was surveyed in the 1920s as a village based around the Moriac railway station on the Port Fairy line. The station had been provided to serve the adjacent community of Mount Moriac. The railway through Moriac opened in 1876, followed by the Wensleydale branch line which junctioned with the main line just past Moriac. The branch line opened in 1890 and closed in 1948. A Post Office had opened on 1 August 1854 as Duneed, and was renamed Mount Moriac in 1864 and Moriac in about 1909.

The pub has recently been totally renovated. It is now the best looking pub in the middle of no where.
