Yes… There’s another Bulli, besides in the Illawarra, NSW.
Bulli Creek is located south west of Toowoomba in Queensland on the Darling Downs. And yes, there is also another Bulli pub, besides the Illawarra’s Heritage Hotel… Well, kind-of…
Bulli Creek is open woodland, and farming country, except for the “Claytons” watering hole (pictured above)… I dug this magazine clipping from one of my files. It’s undated, but on the back is a cigarette advertisement (so probably early 1990s). It reads: “One of the world’s great hotels, the Bulli Creek Hotel, is the ultimate in BYO – bring your own food, drink, bed, floor, roof….”
Bulli Creek’s claim to fame these days is a planned $1 billion solar farm. Approval was granted for Australia’s biggest solar farm with developers beginning construction in 2016 on the project (artist impression pictured above).
The solar panel farm is being built in stages west of Toowoomba at a 200-hectare site at Bulli Creek, which sits between Millmerran and Goondiwindi.
