He was fascinated by a display of stuffed birds, including a white cockatoo, behind the bar.
Martin Dunstan remembers:
Occasionally, my father would take me with him when he visited the Willunga Hotel, at that time owned by the Quinn family of which I do remember Andy and Molly. I was sat on the counter and Molly would give me a raspberry drink. What a wonderful flavour the drink had and I can say that I have not experienced its equal since.
On the top shelf behind the bar were several glass fronted display cases which contained stuffed birds and I can still visualize the white cockatoo as though it were yesterday.
Like most business premises in those days the floor of the bar room was slate.
At the rear of the hotel was quite a large car park from where patrons were able to enter the hotel from a rear door near a large moreton bay fig tree.
