Men, women and children, horses and carriages, in front of Cobb's Camp Hotel at Woombye, Queensland, around 1872. The hotel is a lowset weatherboard building, with a shingled roof and front verandah with all the doors of the rooms opening onto it. It was built by Cobb and Co for the overnight accommodation of passengers. At first the name Middle Camp was used, but it quickly became known as Cobb's Camp. The builders were Mewett & Son of Caboolture. The first passengers stayed at the hotel on 12 November 1868, and a liquor licence was granted to the keeper, James Costa, in 1870.
