The Tourist Hotel is located in Fitzmaurice Street, Wagga Wagga, an area
enjoying recent refurbishment to some of Wagga's earliest buildings.
The building is Art Deco in style and Icono was engaged to update the
dark and uninviting interior and building façade to regain the
Australian charm and style of the pub.
The street frontage was opened up with the installation of timber &
glass bifold doors and windows, thus allowing much needed light to flood
into the front bar. A new Spotted Gum Australian hardwood floor was
installed to complement the original timber bar, which has been
refurbished to accommodate new bar equipment and a more efficient service
New ceilings with recessed downlighting with stone linings and
refurbished timber mantels to the existing fireplaces have created a warm
and cosy ambience.
A new paint colour scheme throughout the interior and exterior along with
new furnishings and signage has created an inviting and vibrant
atmosphere. A new lease of life for an old Wagga pub that is now buzzing.
