From the oldest licensed pub in Queensland to the grand old dames that have had stunning makeovers, a guide to Brisbane's historic pubs:
The Lord Alfred Hotel, one of Brisbane’s grandest old pubs circa 1868, has been given a stunning makeover
The Boundary Hotel, West End’s iconic landmark pub circa 1864, is a fascinating multi-layered labyrinth of ambient nooks and crannies, including rooftop and laneway bars
Royal Mail Hotel at Goodna is an historic hotel that on weekends is the centre of live blues'n'roots
Munich Brauhaus is bringing Oktoberfest to Brisbane’s South Bank 365 days a year, with their epic traditional bier hall, German steins and pork knuckles.
For a traditional English pub experience without the long-haul flight, the Fox & Hounds Country Inn is a must-visit destination
Little Big House pays homage to Queensland’s sun soaked, laidback lifestyle with their heritage listed Queenslander venue in Southpoint.
St Bernards Hotel, founded in 1911, is a historic hotel perched atop Mt Tamborine on the edge of an ancient volcanic escarpment
Step back in time at The Heritage Hotel, a two storey restaurant and function centre located at Old Petrie Town
The Apollonian Hotel has been a social hub since the 1860s and the Gympie gold rush days
Brisbane icon and Richard Gailey-designed historic pub The Wickham has a new incarnation as an internationally styled venue peddling everything from cafe fare by day to great cocktails and upmarket bar food by night.
Grand old dame of New Farm, The Brunswick Hotel is in the throes of a major makeover with Stage One ushering in a new era as a gastro pub, garden bar and lounge bar.
Built in 1874 as a private residence, the Ship Inn was been operating on and off as a hotel since 1879 when it was a hangout for drunken sailors.
With its multi level lace iron wraparound verandahs and decorative trimmings the Regatta is as fine an example of an 1880’s Queensland pub as you’ll find.
The original hotel building dates from the boom times of the late 1880’s, hence the detailed plaster features and lacework, while the rambling tiled beer garden with white-washed pillars was added twenty two years ago.
The Grand View began life as a single storeyed structure in 1851 and today after various extensions and a motley history is one of Cleveland’s oldest surviving buildings.
