THE Karara Hotel Motel is making a fresh start with a beautiful refurbishment and a new licensee.

"We have a fantastic new licensee, Shirley, who is doing a fantastic job," owner Dianne Andrews said.

"There are meals at the pub every night of the week and Shirley is bringing in more events."

Licensee Shirley McFarlane said she enjoyed looking after the hotel.

"It's a great little community out here," she said.

"We have people from all around the region coming to the pub.

"I have only been here a few months since I recently moved from another pub in Rockhampton.

"The locals love the pub and we are even the post office here in Karara.

"We have some big events coming up in the next few weeks.

"Next Friday we have country singer Butch Colliery coming to sing.

"There will be free finger food for everyone who comes along.

"It would be great to get a good turnout and would certainly encourage us to put on more events like this."

The Karara Hotel Motel has been around for 70 years, however about 20 years ago it burnt down and was rebuilt across the road from the old location.

There are four refurbished hotel rooms and a large function room.

 

For more information about events at the Karara Hotel Motel, phone Shirley on 4667 4141.
