Joe’s Waterhole

Joe’s Waterhole

Joe’s Waterhole is an iconic Queensland hotel, built in 1891 when it was named the Commercial Hotel. In 1924 a fire swept through town and the pub had to be rebuilt in 1926. Local legend, boxer, farmer and practical joker Joe Whiting took over in 1962, swapping his Maroochydore sugarcane farm for the hotel and later changed the name to Joe’s Waterhole.

Located in the main street, the hotel is right across the road from the famous Eumundi Markets. The venue has been the home for some amazing entertainment over the years and this tradition continues with live music on the weekends.

The front bar has retained the traditional country pub heritage. You will feel like you’ve stepped back in time, though with modern facilities like Keno & TAB available.

Behind the Front Bar is a Gaming Lounge and Bar leading into the large Bistro area. There is also a popular Pool Room plus Beer Garden out the back that regularly hosts live entertainment. Dogs are welcome in the Beer Garden too.

Many international bands have played at Joe’s and we have some great entertainment coming up every week. Check out the gig guide for details.

We have four guest rooms available, air-conditioned with TV, bar fridge and tea/coffee making facilities and shared bathroom facilities.

Bookings essential.
