Pyrmont, Terminus Hotel

The Terminus Hotel is located on the corner of Harris Street and John Street, in the inner west suburb of Pyrmont. This heritage listed pub was built in 1900 in the Victorian architectural style and then remodelled in 1917 in the Federation Free architectural style. It was once known as the Cooper's Arms Hotel because it was close to a rum distillery cooperage, which was part of the Colonial Sugar Refining (CSR) Co Ltd. It became the Terminus Hotel since it stood at the end of the tram service from the city to Pyrmont. It was abandoned in 1983 and became dilapidated and overgrown with vines, which can be seen here. It was restored and redeveloped in 2018 and reopened this month.

  2. What a great improvement since the last photo. They did a great job restoring the beauty back in to the building.

  3. This building has an interesting history; if only wall could talk! Actually the vines on the building looked rather attractive even though it was unkempt in other areas. Corner buildings like this one always intrigues me.
