In this old pub, in 1967, then Shire President (mayor) and proprietor and later federal government member of parliament Wilson Tuckey, assaulted an Aboriginal patron. Two people held the man down while Tuckey went at him with a piece of coaxial cable. Tuckey was fined $40 in the local magistrate's court. He is still a federal member of parliament (c.2009).

Hello! I am David. Thank you for your attention.

I am from Hong Kong. I am going to go to Australia for working holiday in late November. I am looking for accommodation and jobs right now, and I see this website from Google Search.
I think your place and rooms are quite good to stay, and the environment very suitable for me, but I have some questions:

Is Port Hotel providing job which can be starting in November?

Could I apply for any farm jobs before I go to Australia? (I am in Hong Kong at the moment, going to arrive in Australia in late November, around 26th November)
Or I have to be within Australia when I apply the jobs?

Is it possible to start a job immediately when I arrive in Port Hotel?

Should I send you more of my information first?

I would like to work outdoor. Farm jobs and fruit picking job are goo for me. I think I will choose this one if I can have a job there as soon as possible.

Thank you very much!

This hotel does not have free wifi.

When i stayed there last november, it was $175 p/w for a single room or $150 for a twin and if you used the daily bus to/from work, it was an extra $25.
