One of the most iconic buildings in the Fortitude Valley, The Wickham Hotel stands proud as both a historic building and a living, breathing monument to the colorful history of the Valley.

The three-storeyed masonry hotel, was constructed by the firm Cussack and O’Keefe in 1885, with the design by Richard Gailey who was also responsible for the design of several other hotels in Brisbane during the 1880s, including The Regatta at Toowong.

The hotel has undergone a number of modifications primarily on the ground floor. Single storied extensions have been built on the north-east and north-west sides, and a drive-in bottle shop that was once located at the hotel has been transformed into a classic Beer Garden.

Throughout these renovations, the iconic facade has remained, including the iconically Brisbane cantilevered verandah, ornamental cast-iron balustrade and rendered chimney stacks.

Recently lovingly restored, the venue heroes it’s eclectic history while creating a safe and welcoming environment for the community, all set in a classic beautiful, heritage Queensland Pub.
