Hobart

Tasmania’s lively capital

There are certain things going for Hobart that it enjoys with natural abandon. Few cities can boast a mountainous backdrop, harbour on the front doorstep and some of the world’s cleanest air. Hobart is Tasmania’s liveable, dynamic capital and also Australia’s second oldest city. As such, it has a few stories to share from the past yet blends these with a youthful, inventive personality of today.

Spinnakers billow on the River Derwent, the MONA ferry hums with folk heading to the latest exhibition and this charismatic city welcomes visitors now arriving in record numbers. The 19th century waterfront warehouses, once lively with whalers, soldiers and sailors, are now home to spirited pubs, artisan galleries and restaurants serving up Tassie’s best produce.

Beginning its days as a penal colony in 1804, settled by Lieutenant Governor Collins, Hobart is brimming with stories of British and Irish convicts. Their sandstone handiwork can be found across the city and their mark on early Hobart Town is a constant presence.

Located in Tasmania’s south east, Hobart is within a 90-minute drive of some well-visited destinations, making it a solid base to explore from. Head to Bruny Island for the day or make a weekend of it. Venture down to the orchards, vineyards and cider-makers of the Huon Valley and pull up a seat in Cygnet for lunch. Just about any direction you head from Hobart will lead you to a memorable day out- whether you enjoy making your own gin down the Tasman Peninsula, playing a round of golf at Australia’s oldest links course or eating freshly shucked oysters down Dunalley way.
