Though it’s Tasmania’s most populous city and the state’s capital, Hobart still manages to offer visitors an intimate and welcoming experience. This unique and charming city successfully mixes the old with the new, especially along its pedestrian-friendly waterfront, where old warehouses have been converted into high-end restaurants, lively pubs, and stalls where craftsmen and artists sell their wares.
Hobart is a relaxed town with a strong artistic vibe and a carefree nightlife, perfect for the holiday reveller. The city’s four seasons make it unique in Australia, so bring a coat during winter, especially if you intend to hike the beautiful but chilly Mount Wellington. Other famous points to visit are the bustling Salamanca Market on Saturday, Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and The Domain. For a taste of some fabulous whites, head to Coal River Valley, the city’s renowned wine region.
Though small by Australian capital city standards, Hobart still offers plenty of excellent accommodation options, including your pick of Hobart boutique hotels and luxury resorts. Families on a more modest budget will find plenty of mid-range Hobart hotels to choose from, and backpackers can rest their feet at any one of a number budget-friendly hotels.
Hobart International Airport receives regular flights from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Gold Coast. Grab a bus or taxi from the airport into the city or look into Hobart car rentals. A rental car is a good idea, especially if you want to explore outside the city centre. Though Hobart offers public transportation options, the system can be complicated for newcomers. Walking is an excellent way to explore the city’s famous waterfront.
