A big congratulations to the Paynters team and Bargara Beach Hotel for taking out the State Award for Tourism and Leisure Facilities up to $10 million at the Master Builders Queensland, Queensland Housing and Construction Awards on Saturday night.

The original heritage hotel, devastated by fire, was rebuilt and revitalised with a lavish design – including two decks, café and sports bar, cocktail bar, gaming room, bistro deck and the back-of-house kitchen.

The unique offering for locals and tourists alike, caters for all occasions with diverse areas across the footprint, not commonly seen north of Noosa.

Well done to all involved for setting the benchmark in Bargara!
