Australian Bush Pubs 2/e

A Celebration of Outback Australia's Iconic Watering Holes
Table of

This popular visual pub crawl across outback Australia, first published in 2010, is one of Boiling Billy’s bestselling books. Lavishly illustrated with striking and fascinating full-colour photographs, Australian Bush Pubs features an eclectic collection of the historic outback watering holes, including such classics as Queensland’s famous Birdsville Hotel and New South Wales’ characterful Tilpa Hotel. The accompanying text portrays a short history of each establishment along with any unusual aspects, such as happenings, famous patrons and even ghosts! This second edition brings up to date their stories, including the handful of pubs that have closed since the original publication.

Authors Craig and Cathy Lewis are long-term travel writers and photographers, mostly writing about Australian bush travel. On their almost continuous wanderings throughout the backblocks the pair have, on the odd occasion, found themselves forced to visit many a bush pub (all in the name of research of course). This book is the result of those endeavours. Craig and Cathy created the Boiling Billy imprint in 1996 and are based on a small farm in High Country NSW.
