Take a step back in time as you climb stairs surrounded by walls of sandstone marked by convict settlers who once carved Hobart’s streets. Inside, you are met with the same welcoming sandstone that envelopes the building, this time with traditional French windows tracing the front of your apartment and showcasing panoramic views of the dockside across the way. Get lost in the view of the harbour on your doorstep as you sink into comfy sofas and let the day slip away. Making yourself at home has never been as easy as it is at Harbourside.
Nestled behind the original sandstone IXL Jam Factory and enclosing a cobbled courtyard, the IXL Apartments enjoy one of the most prestigious addresses in Hobart.

Less than 100m from Hobart’s picturesque docks, the IXL Apartments are perfectly located for exploring: wander across to beloved Salamanca Place, stroll the mild incline to Hobart’s CBD, or take a detour and discover the secrets of Wapping.
In the early 1800s, the waterfront strip now known as Hunter Street was a tidal sand spit that connected Hunter’s Island to the shoreline of Sullivans Cove at low tide.
Hunter’s Island, named by Lt Governor David Collins after his friend and patron Governor Hunter, was chosen by Collins as a secure place to establish stores for the fledgling settlement. The island was located at the mouth of a fresh water stream that flowed through forest and scrub of tea tree and dogwood into an area of wetland, before emptying into the Derwent River. This essential source of fresh drinking water is now known as the Hobart Rivulet.
The arrival point for new settlers and convicts, Hunter’s Island was also the site of public ceremonies and celebrations—and public executions.
Today, you can follow the brass plaques along Hunter Street – tracing the original 1804 shoreline of Hobart Town and the location of Hunter’s Island.
