Homegrown Hero: Treendale Farm Hotel

Case Study: Treendale Farm Hotel

Location: Treendale, Australind

Recognised as Australia’s Best Regional Pub in 2022, this purpose-built hotel has a footprint spanning more than 10,000 square metres.

It’s safe to say that Treendale Farm Hotel has captured the hearts of locals and visitors alike and is a shining example of what can be achieved when a community-focused approach is taken to business.

The hotel is the brainchild of LocalsCo Directors Dave Allan and Lawson Douglas, who have made a name for themselves with their heritage hotels in Western Australia. If you’ve heard of the Rose Hotel in Bunbury, the Exchange Hotel in Kalgoorlie, and the Subiaco Hotel in Perth, then you’re already aware of Dave and Lawson’s portfolio.

LocalsCo also owns Eaton Tavern and Bayswater Hotel, and Treendale Farm Hotel is their first greenfield build, a move that was years in the making.

Many thought Treendale’s young, family-focused community would not sustain such a large venue, but LocalsCo has proved that if you provide a quality product that meets consumer needs, success will follow.

We wanted to ensure the Hotel had something for everyone and could be embraced by the people in the community as their ‘local’, as well as becoming a destination for people who are visiting the South West.

Driven by Design

One of the unique features of Treendale Farm Hotel is its design. The venue is one-of-a-kind, with a rustic and charming aesthetic that perfectly complements the natural beauty of the Harvey Region’s surrounding landscape.

General Manager Addy Ribeiro and his team have poured their hearts and souls into creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere that truly sets the Treendale Farm Hotel apart.

LocalsCo Supports Local

In terms of local suppliers, Treendale Farm Hotel has strong relationships with some of the South West’s most iconic brewers, including Beerfarm and Rocky Ridge. The relationship between the hotel and its local suppliers is about more than just the quality of the product.

It is a shared commitment to community and people-focused culture that binds them together.

The venue recently increased its food and beverage capability with upgraded kitchen facilities and by establishing a new improved outdoor area complete with a music stage. They also introduced a new function space called The Barn which features a self-contained bar built within a shipping container in keeping with the venue’s trademark style.

Sustainability at its Core


Sustainability has been of high importance for Treendale Farm Hotel since day one. The roof has been covered in solar panels, allowing the business to run off solar energy during the day.

Aiming High

The Treendale Farm Hotel now find themselves on the Australian Hospitality Awards Wall of Fame following a runaway winning streak. They have now won the prestigious titles of Australia’s Best Regional Venue, Best Family Dining Experience and Best Retail Liquor Store three years in a row (from 2021 to 2023).

These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team at the hotel, and they are now role models for the Western Australian Hospitality industry.

Looking to the Future

Dave and Lawson have big plans to continue Treendale Farm’s growth.

A major 2023 project was the transformation of one of the outdoor spaces into an indoor events and functions area, perfect for everything from corporate functions to household-name comedy events.

Additionally, the venue is looking to expand its popular children’s play spaces, providing even more appeal to families.
