Oldest Hotel in Melbourne

The oldest hotels in Melbourne were all licenced in 1853 and still operating.

Duke of Wellington


According to the Tetlow Index, Melbourne's oldest hotel is the Duke of Wellington on the corner of Flinders and Russell Streets built in 1850 and licenced in 1853 which reopened its doors as The Duke in 2013.

Mac's Hotel


Mac's Hotel at 34 Franklin Street was built and licenced in 1853, the gold escort was accommodated here and the hotel included stabling for 100 horses and a lock-up.

Oddfellows Hotel is also regarded as one of Melbourneís oldest hotels (1853) although today it operates as a restaurant.

The Malvern Hotel in the suburb of Malvern has been operating since 1853.

The Victoria Hotel in Little Collins Street was the first in Melbourne to have electric lights. Originally the Vic was known as the Victoria Coffee Palace, founded by a Temperance League as an alternative to the rowdy, bawdy pub accommodation on offer during the late 19th century.

Cole | Tetlow Index


The Tetlow Index to the Robert K Cole collection of hotel records at the State Library of Victoria was compiled by Eric Tetlow. The index contains over 21,000 names of hotel licencees taken from the Melbourne city and metropolitan volumes of the Robert K Cole collection of hotel records.

Robert K Cole was a well-known identity in the brewing world of Victoria, joining Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) in 1906 and spending all of his working life at a Victorian plant. He was a member of the Historical Society of Victoria, taking particular interest in the history of the brewing industry and hotels in Victoria.

Why do we call it a 'pub'? After the publican who runs the Public house.
