The D’Aguilar Hotel has been a popular meeting place and watering hole for many people over the years especially with the locals and residents from Mt Mee, Woodford and even Caboolture.
It has the air of a typical country hotel. The D’Aguilar Hotel like many country hotels has changed a lot in appearance over the years. Those large open verandas have been enclosed to provide more space in the main bar area. Also, the Billiard Room at the side of the hotel where many a disagreement was settled went many years ago.
In approximately 1987, the hotel was used as an “extra” in a film called “The Surfer”.
The hotel has not only been a meeting place for thirsty travellers and locals but also a place where many social events have taken place. Among them is the regular Tuesday night, Darts Night where up to 24 men and women compete. Other events have included boxing matches and live bands. The D’Aguilar Hotel has also supported the school by giving proceeds gained from the lucky number tickets.
In December 1991, the owners at the time, Keith and Anne Shoebridge built a large Drive-in bottle Shop and Liquor Barn thus ensuring that the D’Aguilar Hotel will be in operation for years to come.
A Little More History
The D’Aguilar Hotel… has had a long history, commencing originally at Paddy’s Pinch, situated at the foot of the D’Aguilar Range.
It was originally called the “Bushman’s Arms” with William Tracey as the first licensee.
In those early days, the Bushman’s Arms was a popular stopover for coach travellers before the hazardous journey up the big hill to Woodford or Kilcoy.
When the railway line was constructed in 1909, business at the Bushman’s Arms, fell off dramatically, so in 1911, it was decided by the publican at the time, James John Casey, a Boer War Veteran to move the hotel lock, stock and barrel up the D’Aguilar Range to its present site opposite the D’Aguilar Railway Station.
Story has it that Kieran Cash and Dave Hennessey were the first to drink at the D’Aguilar Hotel after its removal from Paddy’s Pinch. They camped all night on the veranda until it opened so they could be first in.
