Cooyar Hotel was originally a single story hotel built in 1903 but was rebuilt into a two storey in 1936 after burning down the previous Christmas Eve. Cooyar Hotel with our sweeping verandas is just 2 hours from both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts and Brisbane. Our “Outback Bar” has seen a great many BBQ, wedding and birthday party, or is the place to have just a great night out!
One of our very own proprietors, Karyn, has won the Leukemia Foundation’s “Ugliest” Barmaid award for Queensland with her tireless efforts to raise money for leukemia. As of September 2013, she has raised $45,000 in the last 3 years, with almost $20,000 of that raised just this year alone! Cooyar is not just famous for our fundraising but also for our annual rodeo, agricultural show, trail bike rides and camp draft. Cooyar may have a small population of about 320 but we have big hearts and are always happy chat, recite poetry or help out. We welcome everyone! It’s got to be the friendliest bar in Australia!
Our “Outback Bar” is fantastic for functions! With a BBQ, bar and a stage for a band, it’s a great venue for all types of weather!
Cooyar Hotel is a fun place that’s full of atmosphere!
Make yourself at home.
