“The Pub without a Town”
Toompine is situated along the “Dowling Track” named after legendary explorer and pastoralist Vincent Dowling. Cobb & Co once serviced this town with its regular coach schedules. All that remains today from the early pioneering days is the Toompine Hotel (circa 1893). Toompine is a great place to have a beer or two and a yarn with the locals. Book into the “Toompine Terraces” for a night or two. A court is available for a game of tennis or have a round of golf on the sand course. Great meals are available at the pub day and night.
The local “Cemery” is just a kilometre down the road, ask for directions and the story behind the name. Fossick for Opal at Duck Creek & Sheep Station Creek Opal Mines.
