Publican Phil Gregurke welcomes visitors with open arms and loves nothing more than to have a drink with his guests late into the night. Like many outback pubs, the ceiling of the bar area strains under the weight of visitors’ hats; in this case, many once belonging to those who’ve worked on the Birdsville Track.
Look closer and you’ll also see snippets of human hair hanging from the ceiling, once belonging to those who’ve drunk at this quirky establishment. Flags, stickers, stubby coolers, $5 notes, old signage and plenty of other strange paraphernalia also adorn the walls.
If you fancy a feed to go with your icy cold beer, the pub serves everything from bacon and egg rolls, pies, pasties and burgers, through to schnitzels and T-bone steaks. If you can drag yourself away from the bar, a soak in the hot spring bath is a great way to relax.
