A foodies' fusion of fancy

The recipe for award-winning success at The Australasian Circa 1858 is one with many ingredients. The backdrop to this engaging concoction is a former hotel, almost derelict when chef-owner and Japanophile Juliet Michell discovered it. With the original name as their inspiration, Juliet and her partner Deborah Smalley envisioned a unique opportunity to create an escape that blended heritage with contemporary, stone with glass, Australian with Asian and silky guest suites with divine cuisine.

Set in the heart of the heritage precinct of the seaside town Goolwa, The Australasian Circa 1858 offers five gorgeous suites that respect their traditional bones, but offer a flight of fancy in their colonial-contemporary interiors and Japanese accents. The experience here is unabashedly five-star, from the chef-prepared breakfast discretely trollied to your suite each morning to daily servicing and concierge service. Then there is the dining experience, where chef Juliet offers a three-course menu inspired by Asian flavour and technique.

This quiet, unassuming gem is a diva once you step through the door and we believe it is among the greats of boutique Australian gourmet escapes. While it is true you could choose just to dine on a Saturday when the dining room is open to outside guests, you'd only be getting one part of a wonderful sensory experience that’s appreciated in full when you stay.
