The Bushranger Hotel was built in 1860 as Kimberley's Commercial Hotel. It was one of the five original inns built in Collector, to serve the many people travelling to and from the Kiandra Goldfields.

Although the Goldfield days were quite rough and tumble, it was not until January 26, 1865, when bushranger Ben Hall and his gang entered Collector, that it would be put on the map. It was Constable Nelson and teenaged bushranger John Dunn who would make history that day.
