The Treasury Heritage Hotel, built 1901–05, has an historic association with a number of government and civi institutions. The Executive Council and Cabinet met in the building from 1905 until 1971, and it housed the offices of the State Premiers of this period. It was the first major Edwardian Baroque building built in Australia and is the finest example of this style in Queensland.

The building symbolises the sense of State pride and achievement associated with the advent of Federation and Statehood in 1901. The themes of agriculture and mining, the back-bones of Queensland’s economy, are featured in the architectural detail and it showcases Queensland materials. The base course and plinth are made of granite obtained from Enoggera and Mount Crosby. Brown freestone from Helidon faces the outer walls and freestone from Yangan, near Warwick, was used on the colonnade walls. The beautiful joinery is constructed of Queensland timbers including maple, cedar, black bean and silky oak, and the ceilings are finished with fibrous plaster incorporating bagasse, a sugar cane by-product.
