Noccundra Hotel, July 2010
|LGA(s)||Shire of Bulloo|
Noccundra is a township in South West Queensland, Australia. It is on the banks of the Wilson River 145 kilometres from and 160 kilometres west of Thargomindah and contained within the pastoral holding of Nockatunga Station. The town was established in 1882 with the construction of the Noccundra Hotel which is also known as the Noccundra Pub.
Andrew Hume's ill fated expedition, to rescue long term survivors of Leichhardt's 1848 expedition, perished of thirst to the west of Noccundra. Today a memorial to Hume is on the western side of the hotel.
