Jondaryan Hotel, Jondaryan QLD
The Jondaryan Hotel, a historic and beautifully renovated pub, is up for sale or lease. Great annual net profit, on major QLD highway, accommodation, food, keno, pokies, brand new kitchen and more.
Unlike many country hotels, which are often tucked away in rural towns, this pub is in prime position on one of the busiest highways in Queensland, The Warrego Highway.
The pub is just a half-an-hour drive from Australia’s second largest inland city, Toowoomba, and two hours west of Brisbane. It’s situated directly on the Warrego Highway, which is used by between 40,000 and 25,000 vehicles a day. The highway is the main arterial road used by tourists, and trucking and freight companies to get to Darwin and Western Australia.It's 30km to an international and domestic airport
This provides the business with a constant flow of customers pulling in seven days a week, from truck drivers needing a shower and home cooked meal to grey nomads looking for drinks and a game of pool as they explore the historic town.
It’s just a hop, skip and jump to the heritage-listed Jondaryan Woolshed, a highly-sought after wedding venue and tourist attraction showcasing the history of sheep farming in Australia. Not only is the pub busy with tourists, but it has large industry workplaces close by. There are two abattoirs, two animal feedlots and a coal mine all just a stone’s throw away - not to mention the surrounding agricultural properties and regular customers from the township itself.
It's one of the oldest pubs in Queensland, having been licensed since 1860. It boasts the perfect mix of old and new with some of the building’s original features still intact, including the double-sided fire place.The great thing about this classic pub is it doesn’t need any work done because much investment has been spent in preserving the beautiful building which sprawls across half-an-acre block.
