    Originally a dockside workers complex, the Waterside Pavilion has been redefined as an attractive, contemporary venue located in the heart of Hobart’s fascinating waterfront district.  

    Waterside Pavilion has a strong connection to Constitution Dock, providing ample opportunity to flow out and congregate outside, where there is affiliated landscaping and street furniture, including seats, windguards and lighting.

    Whilst maintaining some of the brickwork exterior of the original harbour building, extensive glazing floods the interior of the pavilion with natural light, as well as capturing key views of its surrounds.

    The space offers split-level, polished hardwood floors and exposesed timber beams. A kitchenette and bathroom facilities are available, which are all discreetly hidden from view.
