Boonah - Commercial Hotel

Boonah is one of those small towns that has it all; heaps of pubs including some classics, an interesting main street, interesting local volcanic geography, close to Lake Moogerah and its dam, nested in scenic and historic countryside. We had an excellent counter lunch at the Dugandan Hotel and can recommend it to anyone.

The Boonah Shire Council web site has lots of interesting history and information on the area.
