Anchor on Collins Retro is located at Fairfax House, which is a grand five storey Victorian building, dating back to 1880. In the 19th century, its original owners were a branch of a company formed about the time of Cook’s voyage to Australia. It has superb solid walls, nearly a metre thick and rare and thick 30mm Kauri pine floors.
It was originally built for Briscoe & Co ironmongers and hardware merchants. For some 30 years, Fairfax Company occupied the building and saw the publication of famous Australian papers such as Financial Review. It was also the birthplace of the Business Review Weekly.
It is fair to say that this building is located at the very heart of Melbourne CBD; not because it was built at the city center but more because the entire Melbourne city was built around this building.
