About Australian Hotel-motel: 

The Australian Hotel Motel is the only two-storey building in Boulia!

The hotel was opened in 1958 after being rebuilt by the Boulia Shire Council on the site of a previous hotel. The council owned the hotel until 2000 and renovated substantially before selling it. The hotel was sold again, in 2003, to the current owners.

Trevor Jones admits that it’s a rather unusual history to have a council as the owner of a pub. But this isn’t just any pub. It’s the only hotel in town!

“It’s actually the only pub for 300km,” he said.

The building is spacious, with a bar area that can hold 120 people and a big restaurant out the back that seats 70 people. (It’s the only restaurant in town.) The restaurant is named the Cooridgea Watering Hole Restaurant after one of the watering holes on a property owned by the Joneses.

The restaurant serves up good home-style meals, with plenty of steaks featuring home-grown beef along with reef and beef combos, chicken and Nile perch. It’s open Monday to Friday for lunch from noon to 1.30pm and for dinner from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, on Saturday for dinner between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.

Accommodation includes nine hotel rooms with shared facilities and 13 motel rooms. So drop in and enjoy some great country hospitality.

Arrived at BOULIA late in the Afternoon after what felt like an eternity behind the wheel.
The Australian Hotel is everything you would expect in a outback Pub.Cold beer, good food and great conversation. It’s towns like this that to me are the quintessential Australia, harsh and unforgiving at times but alive and beautiful after the big rain events.
Great little Outback town and Pub, highly recommend.
