The Australian Architecture Escape platform was created to highlight the best architecturally designed stays across Australia and make them easily accessible to book.

Due to covid restrictions, more and more travellers had to look domestically for their travel plans so we thought we would make a place where you can find the best unique satys in the one place. We may be biased, but we think Australia has some of the top stay experiences in the world.

Below are a list of stays that were recently featured on Australian Architecture Escape.

MACq 01

Hobart, TAS

MACq 01 Photographer: Adam Gibson

Located at the Old Wharf site on Hobart’s waterfront is Australia’s first storytelling hotel — MACq 01 Hotel.
MACq 01 was architecturally designed by CIRCA Morris Nunn to complement its nautical surrounds and appears to float above the wharf, thanks to a glass-encased ground floor. Behind the ground floor windows are an atmospheric restaurant, bar and lounge for enjoying the city’s most enviable waterfront aspect.  The hotel was designed for relaxed luxury with high-quality furnishings and remarkably spacious rooms.
