Welcome to The Old Bundy Tavern - one of Bundaberg's most historic hotels. We are located on the corner of Quay & Tantitha streets overlooking the Burnett River in the CBD of Bundaberg.
The Old Bundy Tavern (Bundaberg Hotel) is on the site of one of Bundaberg's earliest public houses - The Custom House Hotel.
The land on which the tavern stands was one of the first allotments bought when the first auction of Bundaberg land was conducted in Maryborough on May 11 1870. The purchaser was hotel keeper, John Foley. He paid 11 pounds. The license changed hands over the next few years. 1875 - Henry Stoward; 1876 - D. White; 1877 - R. Datson; 1878 - Mrs E. Baker.
In 1882 Mr M. Gadsen bought the freehold for 2000 pounds. In February 1888 the property was bought for 4000 pounds by Mr D. McKay.The license continued to change hands over the next few years. Mrs E. Ryan bought the freehold from Mr E. Bust in 1908, the licensee was Mr E. Glennie.
The Custom House Hotel, a two storey timber structure was totally destroyed by fire about 1.30am Monday , 28 June 1915.
In 1917 Mrs Ryan arranged for the construction of the brick building and the name was changed to The Hotel Bundaberg. The architect was Mr F.H. Faircloth.
