The Macquarie Point Development Corporation has a social and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of our staff, contractors, customers and tenants. As such, the Corporation has implemented appropriate measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 whilst the remediation and re-development of Mac Point is progressed in accordance with our strategic objectives.


Although some aspects of our day to day operations have temporarily ceased, such as onsite events, our priority is the health and well-being of all Tasmanian’s. The Corporation will continue to monitor the situation and work in partnership with its stakeholders, including the Tasmanian Government, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.


For any urgent matters relating to Mac Point please contact us via phone or email listed below.



The vision for Mac Point brings together Tasmania's already established strengths - arts, culture, tourism and science. 


Since the 1850’s, Mac Point has had an industrial history which has been rich and varied; once used as drill halls for the army, an abattoir, a general dump, gas works and then finally becoming the home of Hobart’s rail yards.
