Royal Hotel: Why is it Australia’s most common pub name?
“As any Australian pub crawler will know, the Royal is the most common names for hotels.
Growing up in the Central West region of New South Wales and raising her children in the town of Canowindra, Berrill Castles, often went to her local Royal.
Those memories helped shape her question to Curious Central West.
“Something that tickles my imagination is how come there’s a Royal Hotel in just about every town in Australia?” Ms Castles said.
The answer lies in history, during Australia’s colonial era when most Royal Hotels were established.”
