Grand Hotel Bega
If there is such a symbol and icon of Art Deco in Australia, it has got to be the hotel, or "pub". Right around Australia throughout many a town there are wonderful examples of Art Deco hotels.
The Grand Hotel in Bega, Victoria is no exception. The colour of the brick work is a standout feature and the large corner brick curve as well as the vertical detailing on each side of the building are interesting features.
Take a closer look under the eves and there are a series of very interesting period detailing as shown in this series of photographs.
