Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Regatta Hotel is an historic hotel located on the corner of Coronation Drive and Sylvan Road in Brisbane, Australia. It is located in the suburb of Toowong and faces the Brisbane River. The three-storey hotel contained accommodation on the upper two floors and a public bar and lounge area on the ground floor. The pub has been progressively renovated between 2001 and 2004 and converted into trendy modern bars and nightclubs. A famous protest took place in the public bar in 1965, when two women, Merle Thornton (mother of Australian actress Sigrid Thornton) and Rosalie Bognor, chained themselves to the bar in protest of Queensland's restriction of public bars to men only.show more
