The town.

The Larrikin Hotel in Bowen, Queensland.
Was looking for some history on this hotel, couldn't find any but I believe the meals are good there.


One of the streets of Bowen.


A couple of murals in the town of Bowen, there are many.

  1. A really wide street, and low houses, a different small town like ours. Very lovely and interesting to see.
    And I love a lot these murals.

    1. Many houses in Australia are only one story with one family living in them, especially in the towns that are not cities, and even then there is one house to a couple.

  2. Very good the murals, which adorn the walls.

  3. It's a great name for a hotel. It may not be very old.

    1. Typical name for a Larrikin. Don't know when it was built, tried to find out but didn't.

    1. Always good to see wide streets, so many places have too narrower ones.

  5. It is a lovely idea to have historical murals scattered around the town.

  6. I've noticed in some of your posts that many towns have very wide streets--- I think that lends a "frontier" feeling to places. Murals were nicely caught, Margaret.

    1. Yes many of them do have very wide streets - have no idea why they were the people that made them were ordered to do so way back.
      Thanks.

  8. Now I want to go to Bowen just so I can stay at the Larrikin Hotel! It's got that unique older Australian country pub look to it and I want to sit out on that balcony. I'll have to start saving my pennies.
    The murals are very well done.

  9. I love the wide streets in Bowen...and their deep gutters.

    Perhaps an in-depth search of https://www.facebook.com/larrikinhotelbowen/ will give some history on the hotel. I've not gone through it completely...but I have searched elsewhere on line to find out the history of the pub, but as yet have not found anything. My curiosity is aroused! :)

    1. They are wide, great big gutters for the rainy season and that's one thing we always notice when travelling north the gutters get deeper.
      Was aware of the FB site and thanks for the link :)

    1. It is a good name :) I bet many a larrikin has been there and will continue to patronize.

  11. Hello Margaret,
    Nice shots. Funny to see the paints on the wall of the old cars. Fantastic.

    Best regards,
    Marco
