Queensland Outback Pubs You Need to Visit part 1

According to some people in South Australia and Victoria, Queensland is known for its beauty, plentiful natural resources, and a somehow questionable taste for beers.
Another interesting Queensland trivia is that sometimes there isn’t much to break up the long drives between towns, and there isn’t usually much in the cities themselves except a pub. These watering holes have become much more than local social hubs. They are where travellers refuel, cool off with a Goldie, meet the locals and share road condition advice.

Like the red highways they sit on, most of these pubs aren’t on the way between anywhere spoiled by fame, and to find them, you’re either taking a shortcut or going out of your way travelling with your camper trailer.

1 – Adavale Pub, Adavale
With a population of 25, it isn’t hard to find the pub in Adavale. The entire town could fit in here at once and still have room for a game of pool. Debrah looks after the place and keeps it nice and cozy. The only problem with a pub this remote is that you can’t get to it often enough. But it’s worth a stop here if only to sample some good unaffected outback hospitality.

2 – Bun Hotel, Kaimkillenbun
The longest place name in Queensland didn’t deter this pub from coming up with something drunk husbands could say into the receiver without sounding even more confused than they already are. Built in 1911, The Bun is the closest pub to civilisation on this list, but it bears inclusion for its old-world styling, awesome bar and history. Inside, there are signatures from local WWII soldiers from the eve of their departure and, of course, beer.

3 – Foxtrap Roadhouse, Cooladi
Home of the Cooladi King, a burger that is guaranteed to make your jaw muscles cramp up due to its size. Owners Gavin and Roxanne Muller have turned this quiet roadhouse into a quality kitchen, outback pub and relaxed place to stop between Charleville and Quilpie. Named for the original owner, a Mr Fox, this place has plenty of character and a few basic supplies.

4 – Jundah Hotel, Jundah
A bright little pub with a loyal local following, the Jundah Hotel has powered sites, counter meals and a lively atmosphere most days. Everyone in town stops in at least once a day just to say hi, and the beer is always ice cold. It also looks so typically outback.
