Background

Also known as the Wheat Sheaf Hotel.[1]

History

On 22 March 1915, the hotel was included on a list of hotels to be deprived of their licenses. This list was complied by the Licenses Reduction Board in Melbourne. The Ballarat West licensing district hearings on this list were to be held on 27 April.[2]

Site

The Wheatsheaf Hotel was in Wendouree Parade, Ballarat.[3] In 1863 the location was described as "the swamp".[4] The mining map of 1861 places the hotel midway between Webster Street and Macarthur Street.[1]

Location: now 112 Wendouree Parade, Lake Wendouree. -37.551924, 143.845061 Map: Google maps

This is now a residential site and no trace of the hotel remains.
