The Victoria Hotel – then known as Boyd’s Hotel, closed its doors in 1967 when the publican ran away with the bar maid. They are still together today and live in Melbourne. It is said that they left everything behind even the children and spouses, as they were both married at the time.
Rumour has it that the shearers who drank regularly at the pub were said to come each night and drink until the pub had no more drink left. It took them approximately three weeks because no-one was in a hurry. Each night they would dutifully lock up the pub so that no-one could steal their grog (Thoughtful fellas).
