Matthew Flinders Motor Inn
It may not look much from its frontage, but the quality of Matthew Flinders Motor Inn can be found on the inside. Large, spacious rooms (if a little dated); good-sized bathrooms and a cosy restaurant make this motel a real boon for those travelling between Melbourne and Brisbane. Drink in the scenery, too - it's stunning!
