About The Bun Pub: 

Kaimkillenbun is recognised as the Queensland town with the longest single name, but is affectionately
known by locals as ‘The Bun’. The hotel was built in 1911. The quaint old pub was used as a set in the 1983 Nicole Kidman movie Chase
through the Night. Ask to see the signatures of WWI soldiers from the eve of their departure.

Hi Tracey,
I have just found out that next Saturday 1/09/12 is the big day. Lyn Angel told me that Bud has organised a bus from Goomeri for the day. Hopefully I will see you there.

The Bun has been bought by friends of mine from Goomeri. Bud and Judy Angel used to own the Grand Hotel at Goomeri few years back. They are currently renovating. New kitchen, cold room, bar and flooring as well as a repaint. A lot of work upstairs as well. They hope to be up and running in 1-2 weeks from now. I will post again when they give me a date.

We have recently taken over the Management of "The Bun Pub". We would like to especially thank, "ALL" the local people, who have supported us in this venture. We hope to create a "Happy Pub", where everyone's input is greatly appreciated. Thanks to you all.

Jason, I read with interest of the photo you have of the Bun pub. Is it possible you email a copy to me.
The Bun pub was built by my great grandfather so I naturaly have an interest in it. His family lived in the town of Kaimkillenbun.

Keen to come to the bun on a spring road trip from Sydney. Read about it in victor Higgs life story... His dad,my hubby's great grandfather also rob (!)...built it. Maybe rob would contact us direct perhaps.. Chops to get to bun pub sometime in oct. looks like its a treasure trove of history.
