Port Jackson

Modern chain venue known for its range of ales and beers and its simple British pub menu.

The pub is named after Sir George Jackson, who was Judge Advocate of the Fleet and a Member of Parliament. He later changed his surname to Duckett to gain an inheritance. Sir George was also a friend and early patron of Captain Cook. The famous explorer and navigator named Point Jackson (in New Zealand) and Port Jackson (now Sydney Harbour, in New South Wales) after Sir George. Much nearer home, his name lives on in the Jackson Square shopping centre and Duckett’s Wharf.
