The Breakfast Creek Hotel is arguably the most famous watering hole in Queensland and one of the most iconic in Australia. Built in the French Renaissance style in 1889, the Breakfast Creek Hotel is famous for its premium quality steaks and ‘Beer off the Wood’ 7 days a week. In conjunction with Queensland’s 150th birthday, the Brekky Creek was recognised as a Q150 icon.

Ghost hunters can also be found looking and listening for any unusual occurrences. Over the years there has been many a sighting of “old Bill”. William MacNoughton Galloway, an ex-City Lord Mayor, built the hotel in 1889 and resided here until his untimely death. An intoxicated fall from the second storey window led to his demise in 1895 and it is said that he haunts the hotel to this day.
