The second oldest city in Australia, Hobart is home to a wealth of period buildings, a lively waterfront, great markets and a fantastic culinary scene. Throw in easy access to Tasmania’s stunning countryside, and you can see why Hobart is such a popular destination. Spend your days exploring the bohemian shops and bars of North Hobart, soak up a bit of culture in the city’s museums and galleries, walk through its historic neighbourhoods or head out to Mt Wellington and see Hobart from a bird’s eye view.
CBD – Hobart’s Central Business District is where you’ll find many of its historic sights and points of interest. Visit the Tasmanian Museum of Art, Salamanca Market, Parliament House and the Town Hall. The CBD also boasts an excellent choice of restaurants and bars, many of which serve locally produced food and drink.
North Hobart – Thanks to the large number of eclectic restaurants located in the suburb, North Hobart is a great destination for a meal out. Head to Elizabeth Street for a great choice of eateries before exploring the district’s theatres, bars and pubs.
Salamanca Place – One of the liveliest areas of Hobart, Salamanca Place is a row of pretty sandstone buildings that once served as warehouses and industrial spaces. Every week the area plays host to a lively market and every evening it’s packed with people enjoying the area’s restaurants and pubs.
Mt. Wellington – Mt Wellington dominates the skyline behind Hobart. As well as giving the city a dramatic backdrop, Mt Wellington provides great hiking and biking opportunities as well as panoramic views of the surrounding area.
Thanks to the city’s age, there are plenty of historic and cultural landmarks to explore in Hobart. Start your sightseeing tour of the city at Salamanca Market. Surrounded by beautiful period building, the market is one of the best known parts of Hobart. Not far from Salamanca Market you’ll find Parliament House which dates back to 1841, with the lively waterfront, the historic Battery Point and the beautiful Franklin Square also all found in this central area. One of the most prominent sights in the city is Mt Wellington itself. Giving the city its beautiful setting and unique skyline, the mountain is impossible to miss during your time in Hobart.
If you want to learn more about Hobart’s rich history and culture, explore the museums and historic neighbourhoods found in the centre of the city. The Maritime Museum of Tasmania, the Museum of Old and New Art and the Tasmanian Transport Museum are all well worth visiting during your time in the city, as are the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and Franklin Square. For great food and nightlife, head to Salamanca Place or North Hobart, or if you want to get active and explore Tasmania’s beautiful countryside, climb the steep slopes of the colossal Mt Wellington or visit nearby Bruny Island to get close to Hobart’s wild inhabitants.
