The Plank Road Hotel was a hotel in Ballarat East, Victoria, <1863-1891.



The Plank Road Hotel was listed to be de-licensed on 29 June 1888.[1] This was delayed by legal action by Richard Woofe of the Robert Burns Hotel. It was one of the 40 hotels closed in 1891 in Ballarat East as part of the changes to licensing laws.[2]


The owners were paid £770 compensation for the closure of the business.[2]


The hotel was in Main Road[1], which had originally been called the Plank Road.
