Brisbane’s Australian Hotel

jordans australian hotel brisbane 1884

Jordan’s Australian Hotel, corner of Queen and Albert Streets, Brisbane. The pub traded in what is today the Queen Street Mall. ‘Bygone Brisbane and Vintage Queensland’ Facebook Group member, Kevin Murtgagh posted the following comments on the Australian Hotel: Fred Jordan’s Australian Hotel traded at the corner of Queen and Albert Street. “Over time (the hotel) has undergone various refurbs to the facades… It is almost unrecognisable except for the banded section of the parapet. You have mentioned earlier John Greaves ran the hotel built in 1867 by Thomas Hayes, its 1st licensee. It was here where Tatts held their 1st meeting in 1886 when John was mine host. Fred Jordan came later.”


If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
