The Clifton Hotel on Botany Road in Waterloo was a place where Aboriginal people gathered. It was where the decision was made to start the Koori Knockout, and where Bob Bellear decided to pursue a legal career after watching police discrimination towards Aboriginal people who met there. The Clifton Hotel was the site of a riot in 1983.
