Just 45 kilometres south east of St George, Nindigully or “The Gully” as it’s locally known, is pretty much four houses and a pub on a riverbank. But what a pub, what a view and what characters you’ll find! Perched on the banks of the Moonie River, Nindigully Pub (established in 1864) views for the position of Queensland’s oldest continuously licensed pub.
Have you seen the film Paperback Hero? It was filmed here and the cafe’s boomerangs remain perched in place. You’ll have no trouble unwinding on the verandah of the pub as it hums with the chatter of travelers and locals alike, enjoying happy hour and live acoustic music. Pack your appetite as the challenge of the “road train” awaits – a whopper burger, big enough to feed you and 10 of your closest mates.
Park the van or pitch a tent for a few days alongside the tree-lined Moonie River at the Nindigully Tourist and Visitor Area (free camping), located just below the Nindigully Pub. Toilets and showers are available here.
