Apollonian Hotel

The historic Apollonian Hotel, a magnificent reminder of the Gympie gold rush days, was relocated to the shores of beautiful Lake Cootharaba in 1987 and has been a social hub since the 1860s. Built of hoop pine and cedar, surrounded by classic wide verandahs and fourteen foot ceilings, the old colonial hotel is a unique example of nineteenth century Queensland architecture. Named after Apollo, the Greek god of music and theatre, the hotel's music hall has possibly hosted more live musicians over the past 150 years than any other venue in the country. We can't prove it, but it might be true.

The Apollonian Hotel aims to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for everyone, with the large front lawn being perfect for car/motorbike clubs, kicking a football, landing a helicopter or simply watching the kids explore the palm gardens.
