One thing I love, is looking down that alleyway, just to see what you can find. To stumble across the intriguing Childers Oasis Motel for a Sunday breakfast, was quite a find.
Nestled behind the well known Palace Hotel on Childers Main Street, a whole new world opens . I had hoped to visit the backpackers memorial as this is a monument to an extremely sad part of Queensland’s history. Something that remains in everyone’s minds. Unfortunately our timing was out and this visit we were unable to pay our respects to the young life’s lost. The work that has gone into the permanency of remembering that tragic time is a big part of Childers. And to those who have done so, hats off, not an easy thing to do.
This view, caught my eye. After convincing hubby we should check this out, it was off down to explore. Firstly, there is a chandelier in the garden on the left. Such an eclectic mix of culture and time exist at the end of this laneway.
Every setting is different. So, choose your mood! We chose outside outside, quiet and a pleasant morning. The menu is a basic motel menu, but, we had no issue with that as that was all we were seeking,
Hubby loved his Chai latte. Apparently one of the best he has ever had.
Now this to me is a basic yet filling breakfast, Nothing was wrong here it was perfect. Staff, who we assumed as being the establishment owners were very friendly, helpful and made sure everything was to our taste.
There is a motel here, but we were staying elsewhere, however, if you are travelling North, dont miss stopping in Childers. This town is large part of Queensland history. Who knows what you will find down that alleyway.
