This site is recognised as being of great significance

               Bluff Hotel
The hotel is known as the ‘gateway’ to rugby league in the Central Highlands. In the early 1950s, a Bluff team played social matches against sides from Mount Morgan, Wowan and the Lakes Creek meatworks in Rockhampton, the prelude to Bluff joining the Leichhardt League (now the Central Highlands Rugby League) in 1954.
