Swing through the saloon doors at the Imperial Hotel in the tiny Queensland town of Ravenswood and be prepared for a shock. It’s all carved cedar, leadlights and ornate fittings, imported from England and France when the pub was built in 1902. Today Ravenswood’s almost a ghost town, but the grandeur lives on. After stumbling upon it by chance, it now rates as one of the most extraordinary pubs I’ve seen (and I’ve seen a fair few while researching my book Great Australian Pubs). This week it’s Tourism Queensland’s Pub of the Week.
