Nindigully Hotel in Nindigully
Nindigully Hotel (The Gully)
Nindigully Pub claims to be Queensland's oldest hotel in it's original condition and can be found in it's original position on the banks of the Moonie River.
The licence was issued in 1864 after operating as shearers accommodation for the Nindigully Station. This claim comes down to how you define "original condition" and how much renovation means that the building has changed.
It certainly is a classic Qld Pub and well worth a visit.
