If you love a great story, then boy, is there a great one to be told here for you!

A true Charleville pioneer, Harry (Poppa) Corones has a story like no other. Arriving in Australia penniless, Harry went on to make Australian history, not once, but several times throughout his life. He was granted permission to use the royal insignia on the hotel’s crockery, hosting many famous guests, and much more.

This is a two-hour tour, along the way your guide will tell tales of Harry Corones, concluding with homemade scones and a beverage.
