The sea breeze that whistles along Hunter Street on Hobart's waterfront carries a thousand captivating stories of those that were here before us - a cast of remarkable characters, each with an intriguing story to tell. In this very place, the Mouheneenner people fished and forged dreams in the shallows of the River Derwent; the first Europeans set foot ashore Van Diemen's Land and an industry was borne amid the bustling thoroughfare of Hunter Island. Today, this precinct is home to MACq 01 where the stories of these colourful characters are shared in a setting of informal luxury. This is a storytelling hotel.
Each of our rooms is inspired by a Tasmanian character whose story is not just told, but radiates through individual room design. Your character can be heard, seen, touched and ultimately felt - every story reflecting one of the five uniquely Tasmanian character traits.
114 rooms; 114 unique character stories.
Stories are best shared over food. For our ancestors, it was an opportunity to pass traditions to a new generation. European explorers gathered around maps with a warming nip of whisky to plot their next voyage. Today, we invite you to gather by our modern-day campfire and share your own stories over Tasmania's finest fare.
