Notes
The Hotel Wellington was built for the opening of Parliament House in 1927 and was located on the corner of Wellington Avenue (now Canberra Avenue) and National Circuit. It was demolished in 1984 and a new hotel was built on the site. Refer to \"The Journos Pub\" by Patricia Clarke in 'Canberra's Early Hotels' published by the CDHS.
