Road Trips to the Best Pubs in Victoria – book review

 

This book would make an ideal Xmas present for bush travellers who like to connect with local communities and who are interested in touring the adjacent countryside.

 

 

Travel writer Paul Chai hit the road to check out some of the best pubs in Victoria, from the Victorian high country to the wine regions and even a pub you can pull up to by boat.

In Paul’s judgement a great pub fits its location like a glove: it attracts local people, reflects local producers on the menu and taps into, and feels part of, the fabric of the neighbourhood.

A great pub should have warmth, intimacy and be welcoming to all, including kids. The highlights may be quirky locals, sprawling country beer barns, or the odd craft brewery. 

Some pubs you can stay at, some you drink at and some you catch a band at, but all the good ones are embedded in their local communities, so Paul celebrates the alpine hikes, the winery tours and the wildlife treks that surround them.

Road Trips to the Best Pubs in Victoria by Paul Chai, New Holland Publishers, RRP $24.99, available from all good bookstores online www.au.newhollandpublishers.com.
