Nestled in the heart of the historic Hobart waterfront, MACq 01 is Australia’s first storytelling hotel. Throughout the halls and across the walls of the hotel you'll find engaging pieces of history, tales and fables that make up the remarkable history of Tasmania. MACq 01’s unique Hidden Hobart Storytelling Tour has become a must-do experience for visitors to Tasmania. MACq 01 Hotel offers a variety of 114 rooms and suites, each characterised by a generous floorplan and relaxed and informal style. All waterfront rooms have views of both the River Derwent and Mount Wellington, with Hunter Rooms overlooking the historic Hunter Street which is steeped in colonial history. MACq 01 is the perfect place to begin exploring the magic and mystery of Tasmania. MACq 01 is situated on Hunter Street on the old Hunter Island, one of the earliest sites of European settlement in Tasmania. Surrounded by yachts, docks, convict-built sandstone warehouses and a vast expanse of open water. Only a short five-minute walk from the city or the famous Salamanca Square, MACq 01 is the perfect place to begin creating your own Tasmanian story.
