The Comet Hotel was a hotel in Bullarook, Victoria, <1860-1863>.

Site[edit | edit source]

The Comet Hotel was located near the Anderson's sawmill, near Creswick. In 1861 it was described as being at Bullarook.[1]

Is this the same hotel described as being at Dean in 1881?

Background[edit | edit source]

From the Creswick and Clunes Advertiser:

"And now the Comet comes into sight - not the erratic, long-tailed, transparent, fiery comet, whose appearance should have been put in during 1860, but a more substantial, sublunary kind of Comet, kept by mine host Lennon, formerly of 'Our Store', Creswick. What induced him to build so large a 'comet' in so out-of-the-way a place it is hard to tell, except it be that man being an imitative animal, the force of example was too great for him, being so near the very extensive saw-mills of the Messrs. Anderson, a passing notice of which will bring me to the end of this chapter."[2]
