Last horse salon - Grand Hotel - Kookynie - GQDT 002 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

When we arrived at the Grand Hotel in Kookynie (Western Australia's oldest hotel apparently, being built in 1902) there was no sign of this horse. We wondered around a bit and upon our return to the hotel and the car, there was our friend, patiently waiting at the front door for the hotel to open. There was nobody in sight and no harness or the like on the horse.

Kookynie today is pretty much a ghost town with the hotel being the only aspect recalling the days of the gold rush era in the early 1900's.

We visited as part of our July 2019 father/son drive of the 1,000 km Golden Quest Discovery Trail in the goldfields of Western Australia.

Was the pub out of beer...? Might explain the long face... :biggrin:

Not been to this one yet. It's a bit "meta" since it is situated in a redeveloped old brewery (which is mostly very expensive riverside apartments)

London. A free house isn't tied to any brewery, so they are free to stock any beer they want.

A few from Dingle, Ireland where it seems that every other business is a pub with food, lodging and music.
