Dockside Tavern

Built in 1898, the Dockside Tavern is one of Port Adelaide's numerous old pubs. This hotel replaced the Brittania Hotel that had been built on the site in 1850.

An SA icon is featured here; Coopers is a local brewer which commenced operations in 1862.

Of particular note on this splendid late Victorian building is the fine lace work on the verandah.
