The Crown and Sceptre Hotel was a hotel near Ballarat, Victoria, <1880-1915.

Site[edit | edit source]

The Crown and Sceptre Hotel was in Burrumbeet Road[1], near Windermere.[2] In 1880 a newspaper report said Dowling Forest, but this was probably referring to the licensing district. There is a Crown and Sceptre Road which runs north of Remembrance Drive (Burrumbeet Road) - 37.531149, 143.761079.

Background[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

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. Licensing district hearings for hotels on this list were to be held at the Ballarat Supreme Court on 11 May.[1] The hotel was one of about 40 hotels closed by the License Reduction Board and ceased trading at 9.30pm on 31 December 1915.[3] The court paid £300 compensation.[4]
