Author Talk: Railway Hotels of Australia

Kerr's Wagga Hotel, circa. 1890

The history of the Australian railway hotel is a colourful one. From Mt Gambier to Alice Springs, would be publicans scrambled to open a pub on the edge of the expanding railway network, a veritable gold mine! 

Railway Hotels of Australia by Scott Whitaker is a book that seeks to uncover the multitude of stories these pubs have to tell.

This second volume in the Railway Hotels of Australia series exclusively explores the New South Wales story and follows on from the successful release of Volume One, Railway Hotels of Victoria.

The book contains a wealth of information on the history of railways in New South Wales, and explores the social, economic and political themes that helped to shape the state.

Join Scott Whitaker for the launch of his new book. Railway Hotels of Australia, Volume Two - New South Wale.
