The Abercrombie Hotel which was formerly known as the Australian Hotel is on the corner of Broadway and Abercrombie Street, in the inner city suburb of Ultimo. This art deco pub is part of the huge Carlton and United Brewery redevelopement site in Chippendale. Many of the former brewery buildings on the six hectare site behind the pub have already been demolished and will be replaced by many new high rise apartment buildings. This pub is closing soon and will be incorporated in the new development. I thought the former Australian Hotel would be a perfect photo to show on Australia Day.
