About Wellshot Hotel: 

The Historic Wellshot Hotel is one of the most unique outback pubs, over one hundred years old and well worth looking through, with its woolpress bar, remarkable collection of hats and wealth of local memorabilia.

The Wellshot Hotel found a permanent site in Ilfracombe in 1890 after Paddy Finn followed the railway line to its end. The accommodation wing at the rear of the building was built in 1891 and rebuilt in 1956, but the name and street frontage remain the same as they were over a century ago.

Inside, the unique lounge bar is made from an old-time timber woolpress. Early photographs and many other fascinating artifacts are on display and “The Wellshot and the Bush Pub’s Hall of Fame” poem is inscribed on another wall.

The Wellshot Hotel offers seven budget accommodation rooms. Single, double and family. Country style meals are available. The pub has a Friendly Atmosphere so why not come and join us for a cold beer and a meal.

Rain in the outback

5 years 3 months ago

Spent the afternoon watching the rain and lightning show from this great old Qld pub, started the day in Longreach, went to the stockmans hall of fame and the Qantas centre a lot of history here people in this country wouldn't know about, hard working and true pioneers of this at times harsh land.
Cold beer,great feed and had a crack (and succeeded lol) at throwing money into the ceiling, bloody harder then it looks but you will have to stop here and have a crack yourself, and goes to a good cause Angel Flight.
Overall great Outback pub, highly recommend.
