Most iconic Australian Outback Pubs

(284 Views) June 23, 2024 12:06 am | 18 Comments

Welcome to the wild and wacky world of Australian outback pubs! If you ever find yourself venturing into the dusty, sunburnt landscape of the Aussie outback, you’ll quickly discover that the local watering holes are unlike any other pubs you’ve ever experienced.

First of all, forget about fancy cocktail menus and craft beer selections. Outback pubs are all about keeping it simple. You’re more likely to find a row of ice-cold tinnies (that’s Australian for cans of beer) than a mixologist behind the bar. And if you’re lucky, you might even stumble upon a pub that serves up a mean kangaroo steak on the barbie.

But it’s not just the drinks and food that make outback pubs so unique. It’s the characters you’ll encounter. From the grizzled old-timers who have been propping up the bar for decades to the wide-eyed backpackers who have found themselves in the middle of nowhere, the people-watching at outback pubs is second to none.

And let’s not forget about the entertainment. Forget about live bands or DJs – outback pubs are more likely to have a resident dog or a resident emu providing the evening’s entertainment. And if you’re really lucky, you might even witness a good old-fashioned bush poetry slam.

So, if you ever find yourself in the Australian outback, be sure to pop into one of these iconic establishments. You’ll be guaranteed a cold beer, a warm welcome, and enough stories to last a lifetime. Just don’t forget to mind the drop bears on your way out!
