Building Description:

The Bank of Australasia is now known as the Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) Bank.

The former Bank of Australasia building is of architectural significance as an example of conservative Renaissance Revival design applied to a corner location. The top three storeys were added in 1929 and designed to match the original building in style and materials, however the interior was completely reconstructed.

A mezzanine level was added within the ground floor banking chamber with ornate metal balustrades and a light well was built through the centre of the building culminating in a glazed sky light over the banking chamber.

The ANZ Bank sold the building in 1974, ending 98 years of occupancy. The building is now the Sebel Hotel.
