The old hotel, affectionately known as the “Straddie Pub”, first opened for business in July 1962. It was built under very difficult conditions. Building materials were transported to the island by barge and then trucked across to Point Lookout on soft-sand roads that were notoriously treacherous to negotiate.
Supplies arrived in the same way, with the old beer truck struggling up “Pub Hill” once a week to allay the thirst of the fishermen and campers who were the main customers. A bogged truck meant a few “freebies” for the willing hands ready to push it to the door where the liquid gold was dispensed.
The pub has gathered a rich folklore over the years – wild brumbies eating bread off customers’ tables, chooks roosting in the famous tree out front, carpet snakes in the bar and ceiling, tall tales of huge fish being weighed in, etc.
The famous week-long Straddie Fishing Classic was run from the old pub for many years from 1991.
