Queensland’s Ettamogah Pub unveils new look

The Ettamogah Pub in Queensland’s south east has unveiled its new tropical-inspired look, following a makeover by new owners Aussie World.

Born from a cartoon, the cult pub has become a local landmark over the past 30 years. However, a legal stoush over royalties to the Sunshine Coast venue’s parent company has delayed refurb plans for years.

Inspired by the beach, the pub’s size has been doubled, and now features a waterfall.  

“There’s been plenty of conversation around it, some people are still attached to the (old) style, but a lot of people are keen to see what’s coming,” Aussie World’s Tim James told 9News.

The complete renovation of the pub is expected to be finished by next year.
