Sunshine Coast Pubs
Pubs. Hotels. Bars. Bistros. Whatever you call them, they have always played an important part in the aussie way of life, and will do for a long time to come.
Pubs on the Sunshine Coast are like most that can be found around Australia, with a variety of nationality themed venues plus some trendy new age hangouts. Having a few beers in the afternoon with your mates after a hard day's work, or if you're a visitor, after a long arduous day sightseeing and enjoying all the Sunshine Coast has to offer, is a recipe for a great experience. Pubs these days have evolved as popular demand has dictated, with many modern pubs featuring modern, clean and well designed features such as comfortable lounge areas and mood lighting.
Best Sunshine Coast Pubs
73 Frizzo Road, Palmview
Born in the vivid imagination of Ken Maynard, a cartoonist for The Australasian Post, the pub took physical shape in 1989 and has continued to wow passers-by and visitors to the region ever since with its quirky Australian styling. It’s safe to say the hotel is the most photographed pub in the world!
The pub is open every day from 9am and stays open late with live music playing every second Friday night. There are a range of seasonal beers on tap, but what more would you expect from a pub named from the indigenous word for “place of good drink!”
Bluey's Bar and Grill on the upper level of the eye-catching building is renowned for its delicious true blue Australian fare, including fresh damper, BBQ pork ribs and of course a fantastic range of seasonal beer and wines. The grill specialises in the use of local produce and prides itself on good food at good prices.
You might notice the 1930 Chevy truck on the bright red roof of the pub. In the cartoon the theory is that the truck was washed up there in the floods in 1946 and no one could be bothered getting it down. There is a photoboard and DVD inside showing the history and construction of the pub, as well as some of the original cartoons displayed on many of the walls along with other pieces of Australian memorabilia.
