Royal Exchange Hotel

A Local Favourite in Toowong



The R.E. is Queensland's favourite student destination. Renowned for its relaxed atmosphere, great cold beer, live entertainment and massive beer garden; the R.E. has been a Brisbane institution since 1876 and is one of the last truly iconic 'pubs' remaining today.

Despite all of the changes over its lifetime, the Royal Exchange Hotel still retains its unpretentious atmosphere and charm, which is why generations of students and locals still say "I'd rather be at the R.E."
