AN ALL-IN pub brawl ended with six people being fined and banned from the newly opened Burnett Hotel Backpackers in Gayndah.

Gayndah police attended the licensed premises about midnight on June 12 after witnessing an offence on the street outside.

“There was some pushing and shoving going on, and a fight then ensued,” Sgt Auld said.

A police spokesman said banning notices were issued to a 50-year-old Boggabilla man, a 49-year-old Goondiwindi man, a 35-year-old Gayndah man, a 37-year-old Goondiwindi woman, a 26-year-old Gayndah woman and a 20-year-old Gayndah woman.
