Port Albert was the first settlement in Gippsland and was used as a shipping hub to re-supply the Gippsland settlements with the staffs of life. The Gippsland goldfields such as Walhalla and Omeo were supplied through this port. It exported the produce of the agricultural industry, initially live cattle and sheep, to the Tasmanian Comissariat who was responsible to supply food to the convict population.

The hotel was the oldest licensed hotel in Victoria until it was destroyed by fire in 2014.
