About Us

Etymon Projects is about creating premium, world class hospitality concepts that are carefully curated, well executed, and deliver consistent experiences. We collaborate with the best designers to artfully curate sophisticated venues that provide all who encounter them with a feeling of being connected. Connected to heritage, artisanship, ingenuity, and modern culture

Fixated on the origins of hospitality, we are an incubator for ideas and a channel for audiences to experience them. We salute the historical development of our industry and recognise the power of the human element being more important than ever. We want to celebrate this human connection and kindle the artisan spirit in all of us.

Whether developing a hospitality precinct in a neighbourhood destination or designing a multi-level venue in the heart of a city, we strive to enrich the lives of our guests and the community within which we dwell.

Etymon Projects is part of Aqualand Group, a leading award-winning Australian property developer, hospitality, and investment group passionate about creating communities and proud legacies for future generations.
