Bull and Barley Inn, Cambooya

This classic country pub is the real deal, with two stories of 1902 charm and wide verandahs waiting to be discovered. It is no wonder the Bull and Barley Inn is one of Australia’s most photographed pubs. There is everything you need for a country drive with destination dining or an authentic stay right here. Grab a bevy, watch the sun sink behind the silhouetted silos from the verandah, or play a game of pool while waiting for the meat tray raffle to be drawn. Sink your teeth in fresh barramundi, a huge local steak, or South African Bunny Chow. Perch on a high stool at the bar and chat to the friendly locals or chill out while you check the cedar 1930s ice chest that’s now a bar fridge. With a children’s playground within close viewing distance, life is easy. Cambooya is a tiny town that’s famous as the home of author Steele Rudd (Arthur Hoey Davis).
