We kept driving along the Barron Highway, stopping at an intersection and hearing a loud crack as a truck threw a big rock somewhere at our car. Thankfully it was the only one on the entire trip – and we sustained no damage! 🙂
We stopped by Queensland’s oldest hotel, the Nindigully Pub for a look. Nindigully Pub is located on the banks of the Moonie River, and this Aussie icon is still in its original condition!
The license was issued in 1864 after operating as shearer’s accommodation for the Nindigully Station.
They offer tasty meals including Australia’s biggest steaks (and the best so I’m told!).
The area around the pub was wet, muddy and filled with caravans, campers and 4WD’s all most likely heading to the same place as us and taking advantage of the free camping and amenities including hot showers.
We had a look through the bar and restaurant and saw money stuck to roof (I’m still waiting to find out why it’s there!) and walls lined with memorabilia. I would love to be there when the pig races are on!
There is an incredible 3D painting on a wall out the back that was finished just a week before we were there. One of the ladies gave us the 3D glasses to have a look through – it was amazing! What a talented artist 🙂
I wandered down to the tree lined river while Chris loaded the kids into the car and came across the most serene reflection of the sky in the water. People were fishing and in the warmer months, you can swim. I can definitely see why you would want to stay here overnight. Next time …
