Ettamogah an aboriginal name meaning place of good drink is significant in Aussie heritage as being the cartoon pub that was featured in the now defunct Australasian Post magazine by the cartoonist Ken Maynard.
The original Ettamogah pub was built by businessman Lindsay Cooper and first opened in 1987. The aim was to create a themed family restaurant which would become a tourist icon. The timber building featured sloping walls and a distinctive architectural style true to the original cartoon design. There are now a total of four Ettamogah Pubs around Australia.
