Hugh Sawrey Paintings at the Commercial Hotel

The Commercial Hotel is more than just a charming, historic place to stay – it also serves as a local gallery! Relax and enjoy paintings by famed artist Hugh Sawrey, who based himself in Tara in the 1960s. Local contemporary artist Barbara Giesel can often be found at the hotel, too, talking about her stunning wool art, which is internationally renowned. Aside from the stunning artworks, you won’t want to miss out on the Hotel’s fantastic menu. From a traditional chicken parma to modern delights like their popular asparagus risotto, there’s sure to be something to tantalise any tastebud. Finally, check out the Commercial Hotel’s lovely bar. Designed in a quaint historic style, the atmosphere is great and the drinks are just the ticket on a hot Queensland afternoon.
