During your time at Aussie World, you can also visit the iconic Ettamogah Pub which stands out from the highway, wowing visitors to the region who are driving between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Originally made famous in a regular cartoon in the Australasian Post by cartoonist Ken Maynard, the building was brought to life in 1989. The quirky Australian styling is what attracts visitors to this unique pub. With furniture made from trees from the original site and a 1927 Chevy sitting proudly on the bright red roof of the building, this eye-catching pub is certainly not to be missed during your fun-filled day.
There is also a generous variety of mouth-watering food to choose from at Bluey’s Bar and Grill, on the upper level of the pub. This delicious Australian fare includes dishes such as fresh damper and BBQ pork ribs, sure to satisfy anyone’s hunger when taking a break from all the excitement Aussie World has to offer.
