The Royal Oak Hotel Cessnock.  Large old hotels are found dominating corners around Kurri Kurri and Cessnock .  Built around 1900 to 1920. Could they become more fully utilized and integrated into the vinyard or  'wine country' scene?
If the hotels were given the right image and doings then possibilities would be created for day trippers and other tourists. Would the reality be too much for those hooked on theme parks?
Asian tourists are the future 'they' say.  Hotels like these don't exisit in China and contrast with their super cities which won't be found around here. But what's the use of travel to see more of the same?
Ni Hoa!  Try learning Mandarin, it's great. My one or two words and characters even help.

Here's a link to a bunch of hotel photos, mostly around Newcastle, that I took in 2007.

Just goes to show these pubs have grabbed someone else's attention. The truth comes out - was it all one big pub crawl! And a far cry from more recent travel.
....What a wonderful world!
