A Royal Contribution

Royal Hotle, Murrurundi
Royal Hotel, Scone

Diane has been on holiday from Queensland down to Tamworth and the Hunter Valley and picked up two Royals which are new to our Royal collection.  Thanks Diane!

I spotted a wikipedia entry recently which lists all the Royal Hotels and claims there are over 150 of them so we still have a way to go.  I am in two minds as to whether to use the list or to stick to my current method which is to just go explore towns to see if there is one there.


  1. I think just coming across them is fun but it might be handy to check the list before making a trip to save time hunting.

  2. Nice real hotel, a royal collection.

  3. oooo - I like the Murrurundi one - the roof-line is very attractive.
    And so is the peeling red paint on it.
    I'm going to have to start keeping my eyes peeled for Royals too.
    I do to tend to have a bit of a squiz when I go through a new town but I never see them!

  4. What about the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld - does that count?

    1. Yes I have a few like that "Royalish" I call them.

  5. I would keep to your current method.

    I thought you called them 'fergies' ...

    1. Fergies are former Royals.

      Things like the Royal Mail are Royal but not quite the real deal ... Camilla's perhaps.

  6. Two more to add to your collection! :-) Great.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
