Proudfoots Retaurant/ boathouse on the Hopkins River, Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia. Proudfoots boathouse was designed and built by Thomas Proudfoot, beginning with an application for a jetty licence in 1885. The idea was to set up a fishing and boating business. It hired out fishing, rowing and sailing boats. Rods and bait were also available. Morning and afternoon teas were served from about 1888. It was very successful with Melbourne tourists so the second storey was added in 1893. This second storey was used as a guest house. January 2011
