Esk - Staging Post Inn (Dec 2006)

Originally operating as the Metropole Hotel, the Staging Post Inn in Esk is now operating as a series of small antique stores. The present building was built in 1932, replacing the original 1907 building which burnt down.

Gatton - Former Federal Hotel (3 Nov 2007)

The old Gatton Federal Hotel.

Former Kerry Bridge Hotel

The former Kerry Bridge Hotel in the tiny town of Kerry, 20-30kms south of Beaudesert. A sign on the room at the front on the right says "Public Bar" and another sign says "Lounge" next to the main entry. The wing with the old Public Bar appears disused and contains what looks like the remaining bits and pieces from the bar. A large and barely legible sign around on the left side wall says "the pub with no beer" and mentions tea etc - looks like it might have been used as a coffee shop with light meals after the pub closed. It appears occupied only as a house now.

Laidley - Former Railway Hotel (8 Sep 2007)

The former Railway Hotel in Laidley is indeed right next to the railway tracks and the nearest hotel to the station. It appears to have been closed for some time.

Former Bells Vue Hotel

The former Bells Vue Hotel in Maryborough. It appears to have been quite substantial at one time but no more. I don't know what the future holds for it but looking through some of the windows reveals a shambles of small messy rooms.

Bells Vue Hotel Window

One of the art deco windows of the former pub. "Bells Vue" is very unusual as it's usually "Belle Vue". It appears to be a clever play on words as it looks onto the huge Bell Tower of St Paul's Anglican Church directly opposite(?).

Engineers Arms Hotel

This is the former Engineers Arms Hotel in Maryborough, built 1870. It became a restaurant and Bed and Breakfast at some later time. It was still advertised on the net as a B and B in March 2006 but is now closed. It looked like a very interesting place but everything is covered in dust so must have been closed for months. Sigh.
