The Australasian Circa 1858

Hotel in Goolwa, SA

Overlooking Goolwa’s Wharf Precinct and the River Murray in South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, near McLaren Vale, The Australasian Circa 1858 is a magnificently renovated small, privately owned and operated, boutique luxury hotel.  Juliet (resident Chef – pictured, right) purchased the almost derelict former hotel in 2003. 

Her links to Goolwa’s past fuelled her enthusiasm to renovate the heritage-listed building – her great, great grandfather had been Mayor of Goolwa in 1876! Juliet literally interpreted the building’s original name “The Australasian” by stylishly fusing the heritage Colonial Australian features with classical and modern Asian design by blending the old with new, glass with stone, wood with stainless steel and Australian with Asian.

Juliet’s aim, along with Deborah (Concierge), was to create five uniquely “Australasian” suites with stunning ensuites, a grand restaurant, and a light-filled lobby – in essence, a private luxury couples-only “destination”. In an Australian country town, it is rare to experience such a small, luxury, private, boutique hotel with so much attention given to every detail. The Australasian is a welcoming aesthetic haven on South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula where the international, national and local clientele are encouraged to feast their senses on fine South Australian food, wine, and hospitality whilst revitalizing their body and soul within an exceptional and health-conscious establishment.
