The Wellington Point Hotel has been a family owned business for over fifty years and has earned a reputation as a leading pub and icon of the Queensland Hotel Industry.
Bill Hogan, a veteran of the Hotel industry, bought the lease of the Wellington Point Hotel and took over as licensee on the 1st of August 1964. The family has turned the hotel from a simple local to a bustling mecca for the bayside area, specialising in quality food, sports entertainment, a wide range of beer, wines and spirits as well as social functions and events.
Bill's son, Greg Hogan started working at the Wellington Point Hotel in 1969 with the family tradition being carried on in modern times by his children Scott, Vicki, Craig and Paula. Recent years have seen a massive refurbishment of the hotel to better service the needs and demand of the rapidly changing bayside area.
To this end the Wellington Point Hotel has the newly renovated Coast Bar, the famous Hogan’s Bistro and the ever popular Gold Rush Gaming room.
Just as the demographic of the bayside has changed with the times, so has Hogan’s Wellington Point Hotel. The hotel still retains its friendly ambience and outgoing atmosphere, allowing it to remain a popular place for the diverse people of the bayside area to gather, and enjoy themselves in comfort and safety
