Mercedes-Benz Club of Queensland
The historic Apollonian Hotel was constructed in the heyday of the 1870’s Gympie Gold Rush and in 1987 was moved to the picturesque village of Boreen Point on the shores of Lake Cootharaba. Gold was discovered in Gympie by James Nash in 1867. Within ten months a well known English comedian and vocalist named Robert (Billy) Barlow had built, ‘Barlow’s Apollonian Philharmonic Music Hall Hotel’ established on 18th September, 1868 and situated at 43 Apollonian Vale, Gympie. The word ‘apollonian’ comes from the ancient Greek sun god, Apollo, god of theatre and music. It was subsequently renamed, ‘Barlow’s Apollonian Hotel and Music Hall,’ ‘Taylor’s Apollonian Music Hall Hotel’ and finally just ‘Apollonian Hotel.’
