Queenslands Oldest Pub

Free beer tomorrow

by Susie Baber  |  24 July 2022

Sitting on the banks of the Moonie River the Nindigully or ‘Gully’ Pub. First operated as shearer’s accommodation for the Nindigully Station and later a Cobb and Co coach change over station. The Gully reputedly holds the title of Queensland’s oldest continuously licensed hotel, still in its original condition, operating since 1864.

Free camping is available in front of the pub on the tree lined riverbank, a well-known local fishing spot. Throw a line in and try your luck for yellow belly and red claw crayfish. Furry friends are welcome and campfires are allowed – weather permitting. There are showers and toilets available at the pub 24/7 with an optional gold coin donation supporting the Royal Flying Doctors Service for use of showers. There is also a new council-built toilet block and dump point. If camping is not your style you can book a room in the 1864 end of the pub.

Sadly, camping wasn’t on the cards for us on this trip, but we did stop for a very enjoyable lunch. Great beer garden, great food and live music – what more could you ask for to break up a long day of driving.
