Mataranka's Movie Star
This pub was made famous in Jeannie Gunn's book We of the Never Never and a 1980 film of the same name. Gunn's husband, Aeneas, is buried in the local cemetery, and the town has completely embraced the slogan "Capital of the Never Never," even starting a Never Never Festival in honor of the story that put Mataranka on the map. The mock-up of the homestead used in filming is next to the bar's car park. After you've explored the town and swam in one of its many thermal pools, cool down with a frosty beer in one of the outback's most famous rooms.
