The first two were opened on the Beach in 1840. Once gold was discovered in Victoria in 1851, some fifty-one others followed.

Chartered Scoundrels tells you where twenty-three of those Sandridge pubs can be seen in Port Melbourne today. The dangerous days may be gone now – more or less, but in 2007 the sixteen that remain open for trade lend a continuity with our distant Colonial past.

Prices are in Australian dollars. No GST is chargeable.
