Liam Wood and Jim McDougall became friends at Irymple South Primary School more than 20 years ago. After finishing school, they both moved to Melbourne to pursue careers in the hospitality industry -- Liam in bars and Jim in restaurants. Some years later they returned to the region and combined their talents to open The Black Stump. Their aim was to create a new dining culture in Mildura by redefining the idea of an Australian country pub.



The Settlers Club opened in 1893 to give men a place to congregate in the newly settled town of Mildura. Early members tended to be professionals and more successful block owners. It was the only venue, apart from the Mildura Club, where people could get an alcoholic drink until the mid 1900s. Since then it has seen many changes and challenges; it was used as a shelter during the war, closed for a time due to financial difficulties, and even housed the Mildura library. It now houses a bistro, bar, function centre and office spaces.
