TAYLORS ARM Tourism and History


National Parks


Local councils do have some information about communities located within their boundaries. You can access this information through the Local Council site through the link found on Local Information Section of this site.


Taylors Arm is located inland from the coast. You travel west from Macksville some 25Km through some truly beautiful country until you come well into the foothills of the mountain range.

Visit the town for it's relaxed atmosphere and stop over for a counter lunch and a beer at the famous 'Pub With No Beer'.

The Pub With No Beer is the subject of a very famous song written by Gordon Parsons and made famous (with a number 1 hit right across Australia) by Country recording star, Slim Dusty. The full origins of the song are not completely known, however, it is believed to have arisen from a bush poem by Dan Sheahan that was given to Gordon. He reworked the poem and added some of the songs characters to create the now famous song.

Visitors can be rest assured that the beer flows quite well at the 'Pub' and the visit to this place is well worth the experience.

There are also picnic areas and barbecue areas for the visitors to enjoy.

"Pub With No Beer".

Gordon Parsons made verses of the song about people he saw come into the pub. He did not know them. From his descriptions at the time, it appeared that the "stockman" was Bob Lawrence, landholder, Burrapine; the "blacksmith" was Peter Healy; local worker, and the "swaggie" had a banana plantation on the Whip Mountain. Cannot remember his name.
