Bella the barmaid at the Broad Arrow Tavern in WA’s Goldfields

Built in 1896, the Broad Arrow Tavern was once one of eight hotels in the thriving town during WA’s goldrush. Now the pub is all that remains in Broad Arrow.

As we strolled into the iconic outback hotel, Steve was telling me that the last time he was there was 30 years ago. He was playing pool when there was suddenly an almighty crash behind him - he turned round to see a donkey in the bar. With perfect timing, just as he finished his story, Bella appeared behind the bar…she’s a five year old great dane cross with excellent hospitality skills.
