Today, the first Tuesday of 2018, we introduce to you TRAVEL TUESDAYS - a weekly exploration into the wonderful world of accomodation, and we going world wide with this one!

Showcasing all types of accomodation, from hotels to villas, to Air BnB, camping sites and everything in between; we hope it inspires you, encourages you or even just get’s you daydreaming. We will cover all shapes, sizes and budgets, from “beautiful but budget” to all out “blow your mind extravagance”, please join us on this fascinating journey.


So to start us off, I welcome you to MACq 01, a hotel dedicated to sharing stories which rests on the Hunter St Pier Precinct in waterfront Hobart and coincidently my home state of Tasmania.

By design, the hotel invites a journey, designed in collaboration between The Vos Group developers, Circa Architects and Pike Withers interior designers. The rooms are designed with a neutral palette to showcase the original artworks by Tasmania artist Troy Ruffels which are on show in all rooms. These artworks set the overall tone of the rooms which are supported by other stunning design features, such as plush sofas, luxurious beddings and touches of Tasmania. Where possible, local designers and craftspeople were engaged for the internal fit-out, which is robust in character but serene in it's aesthetic.

The on site facilities will have you never wanting to leave. The Lounge which features an open fire, oysters and a stunning interior, valet parking, gym, butler services as well as wifi, in-room massages, dry cleaning, shoe shining, security safe, on-demand movies, games, minibar, tea and coffee and so much more!

But please make sure you get out and enjoy the neighbourhood. MACq 01 is nestled amongst Hobart’s premier precinct for art, design, food, fashion and more, you are a stones throw away from all that Hobart has to offer.
