Lingering Look at Windows : The old pub/hotel

In many small Australian towns the local pub is often a heritage building and is also the centre of the community. They have so much history and have often survived fire, tornadoes and floods.

Yesterday we visited Yungaburra a charming, historic village of just over 1000 people, it is a short drive from where we are staying. The Yungaburra Hotel is a grand old building dominating the main street. With many windows it is the ideal subject for this weeks challenge from Dawn of “The day after”

  1. Oh I love those old Victorian pubs in the outback and small towns. All lace barges and sash windows and elaborate wrought-iron balconies! Thanks for sharing this, it brings back some good memories (not that I have been to Yungaburra – I think I may have remembered that name!) [scuttles off to look it up]

  2. OK – found it. Looks idyllic. I never realised there was a lake district in Australia and not so far from Cairns either, where I have spent some time. Oh, well next time. Now I do know about it thanks to you 🙂

  3. What a very typically Australian pub.
    A beautiful collection of photos – I wonder how long these only pubs will survive?

    • Jack had fond memories of an old pub he’d visited at Trinity Beach, north of Cairns and he wanted to take me to it. What a shock, it is now a steel and glass yuppy hangout serving expensive meals still a great view but no character.

      • Oh no, what a shame 😦
        That is what sometimes concerns me – and the ‘new’ buildings are sometimes just ugly – no fond memories to be created there!

  4. What a fun looking place. If this were in my hometown they would serve steamed blue crabs and cold mugs of beer.

  5. Lots of charming windows, Pomme. I could do with a small glass right about now. 🙂
