Hello there all. Would any of you have details regarding the Golden Gully Hotel that would have been in Tambaroora around the 1872-73 era? Over the weekend I discovered that my great great grandfather William Marcus Woods was the owner/ licencee back then. Any info would be fantastic.
Thanks in advance.
Marcus Woods, William’s great great grandson.

Cannot give you very much info on the Hotel, however in the Name Index of People Associated with Properties in Hill End & Tambaroora, which is available on this site, there is a listing for a William Woods holding portion 74 in 1873. There is a James Woods listed in the Land Occupancy Index for Hill End holding portion 208 “Hill End Hilton” Are they realated? I cannot see any listing for the Hotel on the Tambaroora Map of Landholders.
