Established in 1807, The Hope and Anchor Tavern in Hobart is Australia’s oldest Pub, well, there were a couple of older pubs in early Sydney Town, but they are no longer around or had significant breaks in their trading histories, so we reckon we’re on the money when we say we’re the oldest because we are the longest trading. And our Tavern is also a museum full of Maritime history, Wartime decorations and memorabilia, historic tools, cooking implements and firearms.
“it is reputed to be the oldest continuously licensed pub still operating in Australia. It was shown in a recent edition of the TV “Getaway” programme – a segment on a walking tour of historic waterfront pubs in Hobart.”
