In Eveleigh NSW on “Proposed demolition of the...” at 35 Henderson Road Eveleigh NSW 2015:

Michael commented

The demolition of a pub that has been around since the 1870s and in its current form since the 1930s is very sad. It is amazing that it is not a heritage item. The heritage report itself references the building is in good condition and retaining original features. There are not many pubs left that still have this feel since a lot have been 'yuppie'fied (thing Bank, Coopers etc). Surely as some sort of compromise, they can retain the facade and some of the features like some pubs in the city where buildings have been incorporated. Such a sad loss for Eveleigh/Alexandria/Redfern of the only landmark of significance on that part of Henderson Rd and the only bit of character before seeing the usual 'modern' characterless buildings of Garden and Henderson. I especially encourage you to read the heritage report that reminds us of the features and history.
