Queensland’s oldest?

Just before entering Cleveland spit, is the Grand View Hotel, perched above the low lying spit. This is Queensland’s oldest licensed pub built in the 1850s. With a wide veranda upstairs and a cool breeze off the bay, it’s tempting to try the bed and breakfast offered.


Next to this well maintained heritage building stands Queensland’s oldest banyan tree. While it’s branches appear similar to the Moreton Bay fig tree, its above ground root system distinguishes it from its cousin.
