Find a hotel


Hungerford is located on the Queensland/New South Wales border and was named after pioneer pastoralist Thomas Hungerford. The Royal Mail Hotel was built in 1873 and is still in use today. The Royal Mail was originally a staging post for Cobb & Co.

Currawinya National Park is only a few kilometres away, following the old Cobb & Co route. This is an area of prolific birdlife, with over 200 species.

Hungerford holds a bi-annual field day, with the next one being in June 2007. This is an event not to be missed.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.

See our short list of Australia's best beaches.
