The Australasian Circa 1858

Blending Old with New..


Juliet Michell (resident Chef) purchased the derelict 1858-built, former hotel in 2003.  Juliet’s 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 hotel’s original trading name - “The Australasian” - by stylishly fusing the heritage Colonial Australian features with classical and modern Asian design. She blended 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”.

An Award winning boutique private hotel..

This award-winning boutique private hotel offers luxury Goolwa accommodation with 5 totally unique, modern Asian-themed suites, daily room servicing, concierge and Chef-prepared breakfasts - delivered discreetly to your door on a tray-mobile.

Overlooking Goolwa's wharf percent and the River Murray in South Australia's Fleurieu peninsula, near McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek wine regions, The Australasian is a magnificently renovated small, privately owned and operated, boutique luxury hotel.

The Australasian is a welcoming aesthetic haven on South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula where 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.
