Where it all started

It was built by Hiram Wakefield and William Cooksley, who both served as Mayor in the late 1800’s. The house was advertised for ‘Pleasure Parties’ in private sitting rooms with dinner provided.

Osbourne House

The Full Moon Hotel was built in 1867 as a boarding house named ‘Osbourne House’, once an overnight stop for Cobb and Co coaches on route to Brisbane.

Osbourne Hotel

The boarding house later became the Osbourne Hotel. The brick building had balconies and verandahs at the front and back. In 1882, the proprietor added a large hall to the ground floor as a dining room — the first floor housed a spacious billiard room and four bedrooms.

The history of a Pub is integral to its character and personality, which we strive to honour as we move the establishment into its next phase with maintenance and refurbishment!


The hotel has seen an evolution over the last 150 years with the hotel accommodation replaced by al fresco dining and all the amenities the hotel offers today.

The Hotel has been an integral part of the Shorncliffe / Sandgate community as a continuously operating licensed venue for 150 years. Pubs are a place of meetings and gatherings with loved ones and fun times — just think of all the happy moments that have taken place within these walls over the last 150 years, not to mention the changes from era to era, from the late 1800’s to today.

With the numerous renovations over the last 150 years, the original building remains. Recent renovations uncovered an original brick wall with hand painted lettering of ‘Osbourne House Hotel’ dating back to the late 1800’s. This has been exposed and is visible today, signifying the hotel’s historic past.
