FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Originally opened in November 1911 then known as the Club Hotel, it was the first hotel in Maroochydore. Built for George Bury by Franz Nyman and was a replica of the Royal George Hotel in Nambour. It used to offer a ferry service for patrons who would travel from the Hinterland along the Maroochy River. Over the years various improvements were made to the hotel; in October 1922 electric lighting was installed and in December 1937 it became the first brick building in Maroochydore, when a brick frontage was added. The Bar and Management’s private residence faced the main street, while the hotel proper was on the bank of the Maroochy River. In June 1962 Zebra Motor Inns Pty Ltd began work on constructing a two storey brick hotel-motel to replace the Club Hotel, also known locally as the Maroochy Hotel. The Duporth Tavern is unique and modern but maintains the aura of its traditional charm.
