Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouses have been thoughtfully reimagined as Australia’s first dedicated art hotel. Located in the Hunter Street precinct, the hotel blends modernity with an industrial past. English novelist Anthony Trollope once wrote that Tasmania should make jam for all the world. Henry Jones did just that, and now his iconic IXL jam factory is a world class hotel that marries 19th century industrial design with contemporary architecture and an impressive collection of Tasmanian art. Previously, the buildings housed warehouses, barracks, hotels, and a slum. All these pasts are still evident. Join us for a guided tour with the wonderful storytellers at The Henry Jones Art Hotel and take a step through the past and present history of this unique site.
