Background

History

Site

The Pacific Hotel was in Eyre Street[1]. The Star places it on the corner of Dana Street[2], but this is not possible as the two streets are parallel and do not intersect. The 1861 mining map is not clear, but it is probably indicating the hotel is on the north west corner of Eyre Street and Errard Street.[3] A newspaper reference in 1868 gives the address as Eyre Street.[4].
