The Thistle Hotel was a hotel in Ballarat, Victoria, <1856-1862>.

Site[edit | edit source]

The Thistle Hotel was in Mair Street.[1] The 1861 mining map places it in Mair Street, on what would become the north west corner of Talbot Street.[2] Also reported as the Scotch Thistle Hotel in June 1858.[3]

Background[edit | edit source]

Is this the same business as the Thistle Inn, also in Mair Street, in 1863?

History[edit | edit source]

Withers wrote about the hotel in 1888:

Barrow built in 1856/7 the Thistle hotel, now (1888) a private house in Mair street, facing Talbot street, and reminding old South Africans of the Dutch gabled houses in the Cape Colony and Natal.[4]
