The Hotel Australasia is the jewel in the crown of the Sapphire Coast: a landmark heritage hotel in Eden which is set to reopen after a multi-million dollar renovation.
This luxury boutique hotel is known to locals as the Grand Old Lady, and, at 119 years old, she definitely deserves the title.
With a stunningly restored façade and expansion which includes eight superbly appointed rooms, a new restaurant, bar, distillery and high tea lounge, the Hotel Australasia is the perfect base to explore Eden and the beautiful Sapphire Coast region.
Locals and guests alike can eat at Circa 1904, the hotel’s new fine dining restaurant serving fresh, seasonal dishes with produce from the region, or enjoy a drink at the heritage John Hines Bar to taste their in-house vodka and gin. For something a little bit fancy, take high tea in the intimate atmosphere of Judy’s Lounge.
A landmark destination
As a landmark destination, the Hotel Australasia is close to the hearts of many in Eden and its grand reopening will provide a great boost to tourism in the region.
Mark Toma, a director of Core Asset development, says, “We are excited to be re-opening this Sapphire Coast icon and provide the region with a much-needed shot in the arm, generating jobs and tourism growth. We are proud to open the hotel again and welcome locals and tourists, especially as cruise ships have now returned to the newly renovated port in Eden.”
