While holding such high nuance within the city and suburbs there is an oft overlooked feature of the hotel which is affectionately known as ‘El Rancho’ – the romantic history and beginnings of which the iconic venue came. Dating back prior to WWII, a young American couple of George and Lillian Willis descended upon the Australian land in search of a new dream home and life. At the suburb of Eastwood on the Spooner Highway (now Epping Highway) they found a piece of land which looked out across the farms and orchards of then outer Sydney. They built as if still in birthplace, completing a low-roofed, patioed, mission ranch style home. Passersby often were stopped by its soft red Californian tiles, colonnaded verandah and the two large, unusually placed wagon wheels which stood guarding the homestead entrance. Bore into the farmhouse gate was the name ‘El Rancho del Loro’ (the home of the parrot). Fast forward to 1968 and the Millers Brewery Group. The land purchased, one of the state’s now most recognized venues was then established with homage paid in the naming of the El Rancho Hotel. Surviving fires, flooding and the incessant urban redevelopment of Sydney the (now) Ranch Hotel has prospered and stands as one of the local keys to the history of both Sydney and Eastwood. It would please George and Lillian Willis to know that the home of the parrot still lives on.
