If you’re anything like me, you love heading out and checking out the best parts of Victoria. While we’ve been exploring the best that the regions have to offer, Kate Berry has been travelling around the state visiting classic motels that still exist off the side of the highway and has been telling their stories over at OK Motels—and now, she’s putting on the gig of all gigs at the Charlton Motel.

The headliner of this epic gig is yet to be announced, but they’ll be supported by Blake Scott, Cable Ties, Bitch Diesel, Affordable Repayments, and DJ Hot Wheels.


Tickets are selling fast at $140, and as part of your ticket you’ll cop dinner from the ‘Bain Marie Magic Dinner Menu’. Choose from country motel delights such as roast pork with scalloped potatoes, carrots, peas & apple sauce, the fish curry with beans & rice—all you have to do is place your dinner order at checkout.

Along with the flowing beats, the two bars at Charlton Motel will be flowing with beer from Thunder Road Brewery, and also Melbourne Moonshine will be dishing out cocktails in Dunk’s Tavern (the pool bar).

You’ll also be able to grab midnight snacks from the kitchen like cheese, pickles + Ritz, or just stock up on kabana.

All rooms at Charlton Motel have been booked, but there’s plenty of other accommodation in the area for you to find a place to rest. There might also be a bus running from Bendigo if there’s enough interest as well.
