#Worth1000Words – The Drinking Tree at Spencer, NSW: Graeme Kemlo
Now this is curious… Graeme Kemlo went to Spencer on the Hawkesbury River for lunch at a local Thai restaurant. He bought a bottle of wine from the general store, and the staff told him he could drink it at the Drinking Tree on the foreshore across the road. Under federal regulation, they said any town with no hotels closer than 25 km can do this. You can’t miss it: the tree has a sign on it – Dunkirk Hotel – allegedly “borrowed” from a pub in Newtown, Sydney, but the Drinking Tree itself is apparently legit… even a band plays there on Sundays.. We think it’s worth 1000 words.
