Every town has its pub and every pub has its characters. Australia's country pubs are places to drink, eat, socialise and be entertained. If you are a road-weary traveller they also offer a place to sleep.
Here's a guide that gives the low-down on over 200 watering holes, region by region, across Australia. Not only does the guide offer an insight into the best places to eat, drink and enjoy the local culture, it also highlights points of local interest and recounts a few yarns from the characters that can be found holding up the bar and willing to bend an ear or two.
With over 200 reviews of pubs renowned for their great food, drink and accommodation, this is the ideal guide for anyone who needs a little local knowledge while exploring regional Australia.
