About Hobart - Aboriginal name: Nipaluna (pronounced Nip-ah-loona)

Hobart is a charming and compact city that offers a unique blend of history, natural beauty, and contemporary lifestyle. Located at the foothills of kunanyi/Mt Wellington, Hobart has a rich colonial heritage and is surrounded by beautiful landscapes that are easily accessible.

Visitors can sample beer from Australia’s oldest brewery, explore the Salamanca Market, visit the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, or take a scenic drive to the top of Mt Wellington for breathtaking views of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and surrounding bays and inlets.

 

Hobart is also an excellent base for exploring the many attractions of southern Tasmania, with many of the top destinations within an easy 90-minute drive of the city. The stunning coastline of Bruny Island, the tranquil beauty of the Huon Valley, and the rugged Hartz Mountains National Park are all located south of Hobart.

To the east, visitors can explore the Coal River Valley wineries, the historic town of Richmond, and the Tasman Peninsula with its spectacular coastline and World Heritage-listed convict sites.

To the west lies the Derwent Valley, Mount Field National Park, and Lake St Clair, part of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area.

 

 

But beyond its natural beauty, Hobart offers a thriving cultural and dining scene that showcases Tasmania’s famous fresh produce. The underground Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) is a must-visit for art enthusiasts, while the Salamanca Market has been a Saturday tradition for over 50 years.

Visitors can taste wine at urban wineries, explore the waterfront on foot or by bike, and enjoy freshly caught seafood in the city’s restaurants and bars. In Hobart, visitors can experience world-renowned art, climb a mountain, and indulge in a rich food and wine scene, all in one day. Hobart is truly a dynamic and vibrant city that exceeds expectations at every turn.
