Sydney – Edinburgh Castle pub – Henry Lawson

The Edinburgh Castle hotel in central Sydney has been on the corner of Pitt and Bathurst streets since 1885. The pub has recently been given a facelift, but still recognises its connection to the much loved poet, Henry Lawson. The famous bush poet, who ironically spent most of his adult life in Sydney, lived in the hotel in 1895, frequented its bar and wrote some of his most famous works there. A quote from one of his poems can be seen on the exterior of the building from the pavement in Pitt Street.
