Wishing Well at McLean Place

  • 2A Coronation Dr, Blackall QLD 4472

Make a Wish

Tucked behind the Bushman’s Hotel is a gazebo that houses a Wishing Well. Part of the McLean Place retirement home and residence, the wishing well is a lovely place to sit and contemplate.

Formerly the water reservoir for the Bushman Hotel, work on its construction began in 1891 and was completed in 1893. 

In 2004 the water reservoir (now known as the Wishing Well) was cleaned out by local volunteers and 60 tonnes of rubbish including sewing machines, shoes and bottles were removed.

Toss a coin in and make a wish………you never know!
