I’m starting to really love blogging. So it’s quite a thrill to be asked to be a guest blogger, which has happened a few times since I launched this blog about five months ago.
This week, I was asked to be a guest blogger for Tourism Queensland. Specifically, to contribute to a blog that features a Pub of the Week. There are 17 Queensland pubs among the 100 featured in my book, Great Australian Pubs. So which one would I choose first?
The Blue Heeler is a remote outback pub with a lot of character. I stayed there overnight while road-tripping along Australia’s Dinosaur Trail and had the amazing experience of watching brolgas fly in and perform their intricate dance in the dusty parking area in front of the pub. The brolga also happens to be Queensland’s official bird emblem, and is featured on the state Coat of Arms.
