Will you miss the Whim Creek pub?
First it was Moby’s Kitchen which closed down a couple of months ago, now The Whim Creek pub is in jeopardy.
The hotel owner, Venturex Resources, has temporarily closed the iconic pub whilst it carries out a feasibility study into reopening the historic Whim Creek mine nearby for a copper and zinc project.
Halfway between Port Hedland and Karratha, the Whim Creek Hotel first opened its doors in 1886 and is the last-standing remnant of the original town of Whim Creek, which was founded at the time of the Pilbara’s first significant mineral discovery in 1872.
So what are your memories you have of the Whim Creek pub? Will you miss it? Do you believe it should be shut down or kept open?
