Background[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

The hotel was referred to in a mining report on Creswick in October 1856:

I have very little mining news to communicate from this immediate neighborhood. The lead has again been lost on Portugese Flat, and the population there is thinning fast ; many going to Sulky, and others to some ground behind the late Seven Stars public house, on the Long Point road. The miners, with that love of classical language which so eminently distinguishes them, have elegantly christened the place Bloody Gully-not from any sanguinary tragedy having occurred there, but simply because the stuff is of a blood red color.[1]
