Tradition & Experience

Ian Kidd purchased the Country Life Hotel in April, 2006 after having only been in the hotel once before. “I had an instant good feeling about the area and the hotel, the first time I saw it,” he said.  Ian was overseas when he heard the hotel was for sale, and instantly knew it was for him.

The hotel was renovated starting with the bar and outdoor areas which were completed in early October 2007 and the kitchen and dining areas were started just after the opening of the bar and were finished in July 2008. 

A Barn with bar and stage, seating over 200 has been built is available for functions. It is set in the beautful gardens and it is a great venue.  Top tucker, on friday nights and lunch Wednesday to Sunday.  Enjoy the  menu.

 

The hotel was built in 1914, just a decade after the road was built across the ranges, the Country Life Hotel lies in one of Queensland’s most beautiful valleys.

Noble Roots Since 1914

The hotel was built in 1914, just a decade after the road was built across the ranges, the Country Life Hotel lies in one of Queensland’s most beautiful valleys.   History comes alive at the Country Life Hotel – classic Queensland bush pub only 30 minutes from Noosa and Gympie and two hours from Brisbane.  The hotel was featured in the movie “Silent Reach” starring Robert Vaughan, Helen Morse and Graham Kennedy and has been a stopping point for a host of stars including Sean “James Bond” Connery and Dianne Cilento, just to name a few.

Ian has kept the historical side of the hotel with all the existing memorabilia which been donated over the years, from timber men, fruit and vegetable growers, dairymen, horse people and bee keepers but to name a few, hung back up around the hotel. The bar tops are local slabs of red gum and the foot rails are from an old sugar train line.

The Kin Kin Pub is part Pub and part museum with a brilliant display of historic timber industry photo’s and Pubobillia from all the 1900′s.   The Pub was built in 1914 and despite floods and a tornado in August 1971 which took the roof and verandahs as well as local life, it is bigger and better each year.
