Michael Mack was a publican in the Ballarat district, <1858-1861>.

History[edit | edit source]

Michael Mack applied for a license for Mack's Hotel in Victoria Street, Ballarat in June 1858. It was postponed for one week as he did not have his sureties organised.[1]

A week later he was granted the license with a caution:

Michael Mack, Macks Hotel, Melbourne Road. Granted, with the information that unless the house was enlarged the license would not be renewed next year. The same remark to other licensed victuallers whose premises were inadequate to the wants of the public.[2]

Mack is listed in the Victorian Government Gazette as having paid for a publican's license at the Ballarat office in September 1859.[3] His license for Mack's Hotel was renewed in May 1860 and June 1861.[4][5]
