Librarian Ginetta with Author Scott Whitaker at his book launch on the 8th August

Author Scott Whitaker with volunteers and staff from Mundaring and Hills Historical Society

The audience was enthralled as Scott entertained them with tails of Hotels in Australia that were once named Railway. Due to the importance of the railway line in most places, especially country towns, one of the first places of business was the local hotel. The most popular name for these hotels was Railway. For various reasons, the name did not necessarily stick and was sometimes changed.

Scott has written his fourth book, which includes Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. All books are very interesting and worth a read. Use this link to find out how to buy one. www.railwayhotelsofaustralia.com.au
