Land Administration Building

Cbd

Today this majestic monolith houses the beautifully converted Treasury Hotel, but it began life at the start of the 1900s as the Land Administration Building. It was constructed as part of a group surrounding Queens Park that were the most prominent and important government buildings in Queensland and included the Treasury Building, the Family Services Building and former State Library.

As well as being a spectacular example of Edwardian Baroque architecture - by noted Queensland architect Thomas Pye - it is a time capsule of the locally quarried and lumbered building materials of its day – granite from Mt Crosby and Enoggera, brown Helidon freestone on the outer walls and Queensland cedar, silky oak, maple and black bean timbers within.

The still operational gas lamps at the William and George St entrances are relics from 1910.
