RUSSELL Crowe's historic Coaching Station Inn at Nymboida was passed in at auction yesterday.
The asking price was $2 million.
The Coaching Station Inn and its adjoining 15-room motel was being auctioned through Gilchrist Business Brokers in Sydney.
Dating back to the 19th century, Nymboida hotel used to be frequented by Cobb and Co. carriages travelling from the New England to the Clarence Valley.
After purchasing the hotel, Crowe in 2008 built the Museum of Extraordinary Things on the hotel grounds, which displays famous memorabilia from his big movie shoots.
It is understood the Hollywood star will keep the museum but plans to offload the hotel and motel - which is still operating business as usual.
