Apollonian Hotel

Pub Food in Lake Cootharaba & Boreen Point

Framed by palms, jacarandas, quandong trees and the odd bush turkey, this adorable old pub – complete with shady verandahs and a beautifully preserved interior – dates back to the late 19th century. Moved here from its original Gympie location in 1985, the place is famous for its Sunday spit-roast lunch (book two weeks ahead; adult/child $25/15), accompanied by live music. The bar itself shuts at midnight nightly.
