Almost 230 years ago, the first fleet arrived at Sydney Cove and a convict named James Squire stepped ashore in chains. He didn’t know it then, but this chicken-stealing highwayman had been presented with a remarkable opportunity. A charmer, a swindler and a cunning rogue, James would go on to become the father of Australian brewing – and a bona fide legend.

The Squire’s Landing houses a freestanding, fully glazed microbrewery, where you can watch the team craft the latest limited release Squire’s brews exclusive to the venue. It has been architecturally designed and includes phenomenal views of Sydney Harbour. The internal design of The Squire’s Landing conserves the original structural steel detailing of Lawrence Nield and Peter Tonkin’s design for the Overseas Passenger Terminal in 1988. Multiple external decks and terraces boast an open air dining experience and the ultimate spot to host any function.

The Squire’s Landing celebrates over 200 years since the founding father of Australian brewing arrived on the First Fleet in 1788. It is a venue that James Squire himself would stop and have a drink in… and we hope you do too.
