Circa 1891

Assemblage Boutique Art Bed and Breakfast offers a unique lifestyle experience in New Town Tasmania, 4 km from the Hobart CBD. The New Town Post and Telegraph Office, built in 1891 is a wonderful Federation building, a local land mark and meeting place on New Town Road that houses Assemblage and the Dispatch Café.

This unique place is overflowing with hand-made objects and art works, clever ideas, great food and a passion for a creative life.

Assemblage has four light-filled upstairs rooms, contemporary in style, while reminiscent of Parisian artist’s garrets. Please be aware that access is via stairs only.

The Property

The welcoming Dispatch Café is on the ground floor, with Dispatch and Go take-away facing New Town Road. The large spacious studio at the rear of the property houses Maguire and Devine Architects and your host, Tanya La Paglia’s art space. There is also a relaxing outdoor space to enjoy a drink and meet the locals. Public transport is just a few steps away and ample street parking is available at the rear of the property.

After a day at MONA, guests may be inspired to be creative with the art materials provided. Creative workshops and art retreats are held onsite and guests can also be connected to local artists, workshops, exhibitions and events.

There is information about Tasmanian destinations, tours and unique experiences. Colourful bicycles are available for guests to use.

Authentic Experience

Visitors to Assemblage are often seeking an authentic experience in their journey. With this in mind our amazing accommodation venue has original art works on every wall, interesting colourful curios and a large selection of art books to browse through. We provide a selection of resources, art tools and materials for guests to experiment with while they are here. Guests are welcome to take home any works they create but all art materials and tools must remain for others to use. Assemblage post cards, provided in every room can be hand written and posted on-site in our large red post box.

There is an itemised inventory of art works and objects for sale, so guests are able to purchase some of the pieces they fall in love with to take home. All purchases must be finalised by guests prior to check out. Legal penalties will be enforced if goods are not paid for.

Assemblage is a creative retreat for groups, where workshops can be facilitated onsite and off-site tailored to meet the interests of the group. These can be complimented with art therapy sessions, visits to MONA, local exhibitions and events. Specific requests for retreats must be made well in advance to allow time for organisation and availability.

Information is available about exhibitions, workshops and events happening in and around Hobart and Tanya is more than happy to answer any queries you may have. There are a number of colourful vintage style bicycles available for guests to visit local attractions.
