The Pineapple Hotel was opened in 1864 in a wooden house on a large site fronting the main Ipswich Road (now Main Street) at Kangaroo Point, near the One-Mile Swamp. The original house was replaced by the current building in 1886-7, designed by eminent Brisbane architects John Hall and Sons. Additions and alterations were undertaken in the late 1920s, designed by G.H.M. Addison and Son. This two-storey hotel reflects the confidence of the 1880s economic boom in Brisbane, as well as the increasing development of Kangaroo Point in the late nineteenth century. It occupies a prominent position on Main Street and has continued to provide hospitality to the local community throughout the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
