Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby. Nestled amongst the foothills of kunanyi / Mt Wellington, Hobart combines heritage charm with a modern lifestyle in a setting of exceptional beauty. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet has called Hobart one of the top ten spots to visit in the world right now.
Hobart is Tasmania’s capital city and the second oldest capital in Australia, after Sydney. Located at the entrance to the Derwent River, its well-preserved surrounding bushland reaches close to the city centre and beaches line the shores of the river and estuary beyond.
With its captivating history, picturesque waterways, rugged mountains and gourmet experiences, the city has something for everyone.
Award-winning restaurants offer fine dining experiences using the best Tasmanian produce recognised by the world’s best chefs, while on the waterfront punts and fishmongers sell the freshest seafood straight from the Southern Ocean.
Enjoy the contrast of elegant heritage sandstone alongside modern architecture. Explore Salamanca Place, a short walk from the waterfront, with its galleries, theatres, craft shops and restaurants in 1830s Georgian warehouses and on Saturdays enjoy the food and entertainment of Salamanca Market, Australia’s best outdoor market.
Take a walk along Hobart’s iconic waterfront, explore the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery or join us at the Offical Conference Dinner where we will take a ferry up river to MONA for an out-of-this-world modern art experience.
It’s easy to fall for the many charms of this quietly buzzing city that hits fever pitch at festival time.
Hobart is also close to many of southern Tasmania’s best travel experiences, from historic Port Arthur and the rugged Tasman Peninsula to Bruny Island, the Huon and Derwent Valleys and Mount Field National Park.
- Go shopping and explore the laneways and hidden secrets of Hobart’s CBD

- Drive or take a tour to the summit of kunanyi / Mt Wellington for spectacular views of the city and harbour and the peaks of the World Heritage Area in the distance and if the weather’s no good then try the nearby Mt Nelson Signal Station instead.
