At a glance

MACq 01 on Hobart’s historic Macquarie Wharf goes far beyond a traditional accommodation experience. It’s a contemporary and engaging ‘storytelling’ hotel, designed to tell the history of the area as well as the stories of Tasmanians from the near and distant past through exceptional design.


Surrounded by renowned restaurants, gorgeous old buildings and even convict-built sandstone warehouses, the Macquarie Wharf district is an intriguing neighbourhood to explore. Plus, from MACq 01 you’ll be able to soak in views of the famous River Derwent and magnificent Mount Wellington.
