Fancy buying a fair dinkum outback icon?

POTENTIAL BUYERS AND MOVIE buffs are snapping up information about the sale of Crocodile Dundee’s local watering hole. The Walkabout Creek Hotel, made famous in the 1986 Australian movie Crocodile Dundee starring Paul Hogan, is on the market for A$1.25 million.

Find the listing here on the Raine & Horne web site. “The mention of the Walkabout Creek name conjours up great imagery from the Crocodile Dundee films and is an unmissable stop for travellers on the journey north from Longreach and Winton to Cloncurry and beyond,” reads the listing.

The pub, which is in McKinlay, north Queensland, has been a popular tourist attraction since the success of the movie and is attracting national and international interest. Raine & Horne real estate agent, Nathan Henderson, said there has been significant interest from Victoria, Queensland and Northern Territory as well as media interest from Germany, Indonesia and the UK.

“Most are genuine buying inquiries, although there have been calls from nostalgic movie buffs,” says Nathan. “The majority of buying inquiries are from parties attracted to the idea of life in the Australian outback.”
