About TQH

Established in 1908, The Quairading Hotel is the oldest surviving building in the Wheatbelt town of Quairading, Western Australia.

Originally built by the Heggarty family in 1908, The Quairading Hotel is the oldest surviving building in the Wheatbelt town of Quairading, 2 hours east of Perth, Western Australia.

In 1927, The Quairading Hotel was extended to include a second storey, matching the original brick and iron style, and including balconies with beautiful balustrading and fretwork.

The Quairading Hotel is currently home to Jo (aka The Boss), Jade (aka the Man of Many Talents), Kale (our Kelpie-Rottweiler rescue who thinks he’s security but will friend you for food), Coco The Invisible Cat, and Sharpei rescues Ziggy and her son Hamish.

We aim to ensure The Quairading Hotel regains its position as one of the centres of our community and is an inclusive, safe and welcoming place to all, whether you’re local, visiting or passing through on the way to somewhere else.

TQH History

1908 William Heggarty and his brother Jim began building The Quairading Hotel in 1908. When the York-Bruce Rock Railway Line (now closed) reaching Quairading on the 24 April 1908, only the ground floor of the hotel was completed, so external ladders were used to reach the guest bedrooms on the upper floor.

1920s Licensee Roman Szezecinski and his wife renovated and enlarged the hotel, adding a dining room, the kitchen and upper bedrooms, between 1923-1925. We understand the balcony, with its elaborate fretwork was added in 1927.

1930s The hotel staff comprised of a barmen, kitchen staff, waitresses, housemaids and yardmen. TQH had stables, the facility to make lemonade, a deep well and windmill on the property. The storerooms and ablution block were located on the north side of the hotel block, adjoining the laneway. At this time, the land to the north of TQH, between the laneway and Avon Street, was also part of the hotel and housed poultry, milking cows, a barn for stock feed and a huge wood heap.
