Directions to Bowen River Hotel
If you're looking for a totally different experience from modern hotels or backpackers' accommodation, you might like to try the Bowen River Hotel. Built in the l860s as the Station House, one of two hotels in the town, it was well used by travellers along a route which covered the Central Western District of Queensland; its timber frame construction was how places used to be built. Originally roofed with bark, today the hotel has rooms with modern features and wooden floors, rather than the earthen floor of the early days. It also features space out back for campers and tents.
The hotel is split into two buildings connected by a covered veranda. The veranda runs around three sides of the hotel and is the perfect place to sit. From here you can look out past the post and rail fence, which encloses what was once the front yard, into Bowen's rural landscape with White Cedar and Burdekin Plum trees and flowering Oleanders. It just like the good old days.
The Bowen River Hotel is not for everyone, but for those who like to enjoy a piece of nostalgia and to live as if they were on the trail for a few days (albeit in comfort), it's a home away from home.
