ABOUT THE CLUB
LOCATIONSituated in the heart of the city of Brisbane in an historic precinct opposite Parliament House and the City Botanic Gardens, the Club is a five minute walk from the Queen Street Mall, 25 minutes by car from the International airport, 30 minutes by car from the Domestic airport and 60 minutes by car from the Gold or Sunshine Coasts.
CLUBHOUSEThe first premises of the Club were a two storey brick residence on the north side of Mary Street about half way down the hill from George Street. The residence was purchased from the owner, the sheriff of Brisbane for 2,000 pounds. To the original building the Club immediately added a smoking room, a billiard room, and a wing containing a number of bedrooms.
On April 3rd 1870, it was partially destroyed by fire. The southern parts of the building, including the bar, the stranger's room, the library, secretary's room, the hall, a bedroom and most of the contents were, including the Club records, completely destroyed.
This Club house was restored, but by September 1880 there were 202 members of the Club, which taxed the facilities of the Mary Street Clubhouse to its limits.
The present site of the Club was purchased in October 1881 and work on the present building was commenced June 1882. By the end of that year work was well under way.
The architect was Mr F.D.G. Stanley who twenty years before had won second prize in a competition to decide the most suitable design for the new Houses of Parliament and who was responsible for the design of many fine buildings in Brisbane.
The old Clubhouse was closed on 26th May 1884, having been sold in October 1883, and part of the present Clubhouse was used as from that date.
This Clubhouse was opened and occupied on June 1st 1884
