From impromptu jams in the public bar, through our regular acoustic jams, to some of the biggest acts in the country playing on our front lawn – the Apollonian is one on the best places to hear live music in SE Queensland.

Owners Lou & Neil Paynter seek to continue the historic tradition of the Apollonian as a Gympie Goldfields Music Hall by filling the hotel with music.
Our current Dining room is where the pioneers on the Gympie Goldfields went to enjoy some truly amazing local musical events over 100 years ago – Lou Paynter
The local Boreen Point area is filled with an array of great musicians including a local group, The Sheepdogs, and local musicians such as Col Noble & Steve Hutch.
Don’t be surprised to see them and some of the other local musicians jamming somewhere in the hotel any day of the week. Madam Publican, Lou Paynter, will often grab her banjo and join them.
For me it’s all about fun – I want the pub to be full of music, with the guests and staff both enjoying themselves … and most importantly me having fun – Neil Paynter
By the way – the Apollonian Hotel has no pokies and intends to keep it that way.
