The The Grand Junction Hotel was a hotel in Bungaree, Victoria, <1863-1885>.

Site[edit | edit source]

The Grand Junction Hotel was on the corner of Melbourne Road and Creswick Road, Bungaree.[1] (As roads with these names now do not intersect it makes location difficult. There is an intersection at Bungaree which is possible, -37.580662, 144.009116).

The hotel was offered for sale in April 1881, along with several other Bungaree properties, for sale by subscription, like an art union prize:

It is insured for £500 (which can be increased to £1000), and is doing a good business. Stabling, loose boxes, stockyards, and all other necessary buildings, and also a permanent spring well. The property can be let for £3 per week - tenant guaranteed for two years.[2]
