Kingaroy’s not-so temporary Broadway Hotel

temporary bar kingaroy 1934

THIS grand structure was branded Queensland’s strangest hotel in 1934.

The “temporary bar”, serving the license purposes of the Broadway Hotel, near Kingaroy, had been serving-up beer for 21 months when this grainy photo was published in the Brisbane Week on January 10 1934.

While normally there was a limited time for temporary bars to remain operating, owing to litigation between the owner and the licensee, the Broadway Hotel’s interim bar was allowed to continue serving up the amber nectar.

The quaint little pub, which looked like it may have had separate entry and exit doors, became a familiar sight to travellers along the Kingaroy to Ipswich Road in 1934.
