Bonney's Inn was established in 1831 (built in 1828) and is situated at 17 West Parade. It was built as a coaching inn by John Bonney, the son of a convict. The bricks used in it's construction were made by convicts and Bonney designed the building along the lines of the coaching inns in England with walls which are nearly 50 cm thick, cedar mantelpieces and panelled walls. In 1853, as a result of his success of Bonney's Inn, John Bonney built the Deloraine Hotel next door.
Deloraine is a town on the Meander River and 50 km west of Launceston in a major agricultural centre. It was a council innovation to encourage streetscape sculpture - below are just two of many dotted along the central city street - on right, my photograph of the river is from the Historic Deloraine bridge.
