Royal Mail Hotel, Boswell St Booroorban, south of Hay.

Powered site $15, unpowered $10.

Plenty of room for big rigs, clean amenities.

Good meals.

There are two plaques under the peppercorn trees opposite the hotel.

One is a Cobb & Co marker.

The other is part of The Long Paddock signage which is part of a trail which stretches from Wilcannia to Moama.

Both are worth reading.

They provide useful background history to the pub.

The important thing is that an Englishman Samuel Porter built the pub in 1868.

It is still standing and, remarkably, the exterior has hardly been altered and the interior has a wonderful olde world, friendly feel.

If you want to try and imagine what life was like for Cobb & Co passengers then this is about as good as it gets.

    Do we need to book our vehicle and van in if we’d like to stay over night?
    Many thanks
