Tasmania's capital city is an intriguing blend of heritage and lifestyle, scenery and vibrant culture.
Hobart is warm sandstone, bright spinnakers on the River Derwent, coffee under the striped sun umbrellas of Salamanca, an occassional frosting of snow on Mt Wellington, bush tracks and birdsong. Hobart is a city of history, with gracious architecture, colonial cottages and heritage parks and gardens.
It is a city of bustling markets, a flourishing arts scene, festivals and entertainment and fine restaurants.
Hobart is an ideal base for your southern Tasmanian journeys - explore farther afield, then return to relax, unwind and rejuvenate.
