A great place to hang your hat
For a taste of the outback Aussie hospitality, stopping off at Wellshot Hotel is an excellent place to go.
The last of three hotels that used to serve this one bustling town and is steeped in over 100 years of history as well as being full of true outback character, something that you can't replicate in your inner-city hotels.
It makes an excellent place to drop in when you need somewhere to stop and relax while travelling through the area, serving your standard range of outback pub meals and cold drinks to quench a thirst in the hot outback.
There is plenty of space to dine outside or inside with two large eating areas and a pool table in the main bar, If you have kids with you, there is ample space for them to run around and burn off some energy.
At the time we visited, they had a few animals outside, including a goat, calf and ewe that the kids were able to get up close to and pat.
From when it was first built, the pub has been located in many different places around Queensland following the workers and money. They relocated it to each new location using either the rail line or by bullock and cart until it found its final home in Ilfracombe, around its walls you'll find pictures from its past and a range of unique objects from history.
A visit here makes a great place to stop on an outback adventure.
