Journey Back in Time
A little piece of gold rush history at Boreen Point. The Apollonian hotel wasn’t always where it is today; the whole building was relocated from Gympie in 1987. When gold was discovered in 1867 in the Mary Valley, the Queensland Gold Rush began, and the town of Gympie was Founded. The Apollonian first came into operation in 1868 and would have kept the miners fed, watered, and entertained after a hard day’s work in the mine.
The hotel was aptly named after the Greek god of music. Previously a music hall hotel and one of the last remaining in the country, the Apollonian still lives up to its name, hosting regular live gigs and events. It certainly feels that the Greek gods have given their blessings for this atmospheric hotel.
True to its era, the hotel exudes colonial styling and architecture. If you shut your eyes, take a deep breath, you will smell the Smoke House and be taken back in time. Well known for its weekend spit roasts, the Apollonian caters to all, especially meat lovers with beef brisket burgers, pulled pork, finger lick’n sticky chicken wing, big BBQ plates, and there are vegetarian options such as loaded potatoes.
Great for Kids
Situated on 2.5 acres with large grassy lawns, surrounded by shady trees, it makes the perfect place to come with kids. Let the children roam, visit the chickens or kick a ball while you enjoy some well need r and r in the beer garden. If it’s winter, sit by the fire, get cosy and enjoy the friendly banter of the bar staff and locals.
The Apollonian also offers budget accomodation in some historic railways barracks also relocated from Maryborough in the 1980s.
