Eureka Stockade Hotel, Ballarat

Eureka Stockade Hotel, BallaratI wrote about the Eureka Stockade Hotel back in October 2008. The hotel is a modest Art Deco pub named to commemorate one of the most important events in Australian history, The Eureka Stockage. The Stockade took place in 1854 literally just up the road from the pub.

I mentioned at the time that the pub had been painted but looked a bit dull, even naked, so I was pleased to see on a recent visit to Ballarat that a new paint job has the building looking like a million bucks.

The new colours are more like those of the Southern Cross Flag that flew over the Stockade than the dull grey that the pub has been in recent years.
