“relaxed casual beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Our son and fiance announced they were having their wedding and reception at the Apollonian. Our initial reaction was a little hesitant as on previous visits, although enjoyable did not seem suitable for such an event. What a mistake. The help, flexibility and cooperation we were given by Lu and here staff was amazing. Fortunately it was a balmy summer's evening and we were able to decorate the outside area which looked fantastic.The relaxed atmosphere combined with great value spit roast and reasonably priced wine and beer made the whole evening a very special night. The garden setting was perfect for the wedding service under the lovely fig tree with flowering boaganvillia and Poinciana tree for a background. The availability of reasonably priced holiday home accommodation within walking distance was a major plus.
Thank you Lu and staff. It was a great night.

“Best spit roast ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The Apollonian Hotel is a beautiful, historic old pub that was rescued and relocated from Gympie to Boreen Point, within walking distance to peaceful Lake Cootharaba. The building has lovely wide, bouganvillea-shaded verandahs overlooking a grassed area, ideal for a game of french cricket or kids to run around and play.
They have nice meals during the week, but the spit roast for Sunday lunch is the real winner! The meats are cooked and served buffet-style, outside in a rustic, Australian-style corrugated iron shed. There are picnic tables in the courtyard, sheltered by a huge fig tree whose spreading branches are a favourite with kids, or you can sit on the verandah or inside. The meats and salads are delicious and the plate piled high.
There's usually live music to enjoy as well, Very popular with locals and tourists alike, only 15 minutes' drive from Tewantin-Noosa. The hotel also has separate accommodation although I've not stayed there so can't rate this.
We've enjoyed the spit roast on several occasions, along with family and friends of varying ages, and all give it a huge thumbs up. Highly recommended for a nice Sunday drive and lunch.
