This popular visual pub crawl across outback Australia, first published in 2010, is one of Boiling Billy’s bestselling books. Lavishly illustrated with striking and fascinating full-colour photographs, Australian Bush Pubs features an eclectic collection of historic outback watering holes, including such classics as Queensland’s famous Birdsville Hotel and New South Wales’ characterful Silverton Hotel. The accompanying text portrays a short history of each establishment along with any unusual aspects, such as happenings, famous patrons and even ghosts! This third edition introduces a handful of new pubs and brings up to date many of the stories and photographs of the old favourites.
Authors Craig Lewes and Cathy Savage are long-term travel writers and photographers, mostly writing about Australian bush travel. On their almost continuous wanderings throughout the backblocks the pair have, on the odd occasion, found themselves forced to visit many a bush pub (all in the name of research of course). This book is the result of those endeavours. Craig and Cathy created the Boiling Billy imprint in 1996 and are based on a small farm in High Country NSW. For the third edition, they have had the assistance of authors and photographers Louise Denton, Erin Jordan and Simon Punch.
