Miles Library, QLD – Author Talk

November 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
Railway Hotels of Australia - Queensland

Every Railway Hotel has a story.

From Allora to Yeppoon, Scott Whitaker has travelled across the state to uncover the secrets, scandals and spirits that haunt the history of every last Railway Hotel in Queensland. Though there were once more than 600 Railway Hotels operating in the country, by the 1920s many of these had met their untimely demise.

Scott Whitaker will be visiting Western Downs Libraries branches at the end of November to discuss his newly released book, Railway Hotels of Australia, Volume 3: Queensland, which details 191 Railway Hotels operating in the Queensland region, including those in Dalby, Miles and Chinchilla.

If you’re fascinated by history’s mysteries, consider yourself a history buff, rail enthusiast, or even if you’re just keen to know more about hotels and all things history, this is definitely an event not to miss.

Scott will chat to you about Queensland’s quirky history, and deliver unique insight into the social, political, and economic themes that have shaped our society over the last 150 years.

This author tour is a FREE event, but bookings are essential. Light refreshments will be provided. Join Scott Whitaker in the following locations
