The Oddfellows' Hotel, sometimes called Boyle's Hotel, was a hotel in Break o'Day, later renamed Corindhap, Victoria, <1867-1868>.

Site[edit | edit source]

The hotel was at Break o'Day, later renamed Corindhap.[1] It was described as being opposite the Cosmopolitan Hotel.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

The hotel was mentioned in the Piggoreet murder trial in July 1867. Bank clerk and gold buyer James Burke called into the hotel to meet with James Grant, manager of the Grant and Co. mine. He was observed by the publican of the Cosmopolitan Hotel, George Searle, who was later found guilty of Burke's murder and executed.[1]

Community Involvement[edit | edit source]

  • In January 1868, the hotel was used for a political meeting:

Sir Francis Murphy and Mr Thomas Russell met the electors at Boyle's hotel, Break o'Day, on Thursday evening last, and having stated their, political views, the former at some length, and the latter shortly but explicitly, obtained the usual vote of confidence.[2]

  • In January 1868 the hotel was used for a meeting to plan a horse race :

On Wednesday evening last a meeting was held in Boyle's hotel, Break-o'-day, to make arrangements for a day's horse racing, the races usually held on Boxing day having been postponed on account of the Highland gathering in that neighbour hood. Preliminary arrangements were duly made, and there is every prospect of the affair being a success, several influential gentlemen having offered to subscribe liberally in order to provide a good programme.[2]
