Pub Trivia

The Farmers’ Arms Hotel in Cabarlah, near Toowoomba is Queensland’s oldest surviving hotel having been licensed in 1863. And upon looking once more at this photo I wish that we’d visited on a Thursday as I’m rather partial to Rissoles and Mash. Getting back to the story, this pub has more history than just being old in Queensland terms as it hosted the first International Darts Match via satellite. Yes on August 3rd 1979 the Farmers’ Arms team played and lost to, the White Swan team of Great Yarmouth in England. Who, back in 1863, would ever have imagined that such a feat would one day be possible?
