Gaz's Pub trails, visit a Pub or two

Matter of Fact

While visiting Pubs there sometimes comes up a question or point of Pub history that causes the collective grey matter in the Public Bar into a state of debate. Best we can do is offer to put the question onto the Gday Pubs site and say that if someone knows then we will pass it on to the Boys at the Bar. So if you can solve any of these, please email us.

If you have a question that does the rounds in your Pub and you would like to post it here, please email us also. Someone may have an answer.

An answer to your question may be found on The State Histories page

If you are sending us information or questions on Pubs ,history or photos of Pubs etc, could you please confirm in your email, permission to publish on the GdayPubs website. Addresses and Full Surnames will be withheld. Or your preference to withhold. Cheers, Thanks

Queensland

Up untill Queensland's Statehood in 1859, Queensland's Hotels operated under NSW issued licenses.

The first Hotels to be issued a Qld License were in 1868 in Gympie when a Gold strike by John Nash narrowly saved Queensland from bankruptcy and statehood resulted.

The first licenses were issued in 1836 and many more to 1843 but it is probable that none before 1842 still operate.
