Royal Bank of Queensland – Gympie, Qld – 1892

Royal Bank of Queensland - Gympie, Qld - 1892
Mary St, Gympie.
The RBQ was established in 1885 when local investors were finding it increasingly difficult to obtain loans from sources outside Queensland. By 1889 it had 20 branches and agencies including branches at London and Edinburgh.

Gympie was a town built on gold and in common with other banks, the RBQ saw the opening of a bank here as a sound investment. The architecture bears all the hallmarks of classical solidity, giving it the impression of solidity and reliability. The architect was Swedish-born Hugo Wilhelm Durietz who dominated the architectural profession in Gympie during the gold rush years .

However, by 1917 the RBQ had merged with the Bank of North Queensland to form the Bank of Queensland Limited. The National Bank of Australasia later went on to absorb this bank in 1922.
