The Hamilton Hotel has a long history as an Australian icon Hotel. Providing decades of friendly service and hospitality to the locals of Brisbane.

In 1865 Gustav Hamilton, a prominent Brisbane Solicitor (who owned much of the land in the then Eagle Farm district) built the hotel on the city side of the present hotel site. The hotel was built as a meeting place for horse racing identities and it wasn't long before the whole locality was known as The Hamilton.

Gustav Hamilton finally sold the hotel and retired to Toowoomba, however as good fortune would have it, it was taken over by Sam Hamilton who perpetuated the name and the racing history of the hotel.

In 1890 The Toombul Divisional Board split and The Hamilton Divisional Board was created cementing the name Hamilton as the legitimate name for the area.

Today, as one of Brisbanes most well known iconic venues the Hamilton Hotel continues to provide its patrons with that same friendly hospitality and prides itself on the highest quality meals and crisp Australian and imported brews.
