Burns Philp Building

The heritage listed Burns Philp Building is located along Bridge Street. It has historical significance for its relationship, and continuous association, from 1901-1997, with the Burns Philp Company, a major Australian maritime company who traded with the Pacific Islands. It was designed by Arthur and George McCredie and built in 1900. The architectural styles are described as Federation, Romanesque/late Victorian, Gothic and Neo-Romanesque with Scottish Baronial gables.


  1. Made to stand out against the run of the mill buildings of today.

  2. For a building designed as late as 1900, it really is an amazing mixture of architectural and decorative styles. It still looks fantastic today!

  3. With so many influences it is probably its own style. It is quite an edifice.

  4. Jim, a cornucopia of styles here. Thanks for sharing.

  5. "Federation, Romanesque/late Victorian, Gothic and Neo-Romanesque with Scottish Baronial gables." Oh, Jim, how funny, but the result turned out to be a beautiful building with a long and interesting history.
