The Bushman’s Hotel has an atmosphere all of its own.
Established in the 1800’s, the Bushman’s Hotel was once a much loved pub in Blackall, hosting a rich history of stories and events from within its walls. As one of Blackall’s earliest buildings—built from handmade bricks!— the Bushman’s Hotel operated until the early 1990’s, where it then sat dormant until it was refurbished as a Gallery in 2018.
The community have transformed the vacant building into a celebration of Blackall and the stories entwined with its history, creating not only a lasting collection of Bushman stories and portraits.
The Bushman’s Gallery is opened during the tourist season by a group of willing volunteers and Better in Blackall Festival committee office is located within.
