This wonderful hotel brings the history of outback wealth and society of earlier days alive. In fact it’s so fascinating you can take a two-hour tour. The hotel was built between 1924 and 1929, and was owned and run by the Corones family until 1982. All the furniture was made from Queensland maple, and the floor coverings and curtains were all made in Britain because this was to be Queensland’s grandest and best establishment outside the capital, and therefore fit for royalty. Over the years, dukes, princesses, film stars, politicians and squatters have all been guests. Today there is a variety of rooms, from basic pub-style motel rooms to heritage accommodation with ensuites.
