ABOUT HOBART

Hobart

Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby. Nestled amongst the foothills of Mt Wellington, Hobart combines heritage charm with a modern lifestyle in a setting of exceptional beauty.

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.

Tasmania has four distinct seasons with the warmest months being December to March. The average maximum daily summer temperatures are between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius and winter daily temperatures sit between 3 and 11 degrees Celsius.

Places of Interest

Port Arthur Day Trip


Port Arthur is one of Tasmania’s top tourist sites and a poignant reminder of the hardships of convict life. You can tour the guard tower, sandstone church, hospital, prison, and museum. 

 

MONA: Museum of Old and New Art

Described as a “subversive adult Disneyland,” this art gallery displays confronting works of art ranging from an Egyptian sarcophagus to a machine that turns food into brown goo.

Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

Highlights of the garden include the Japanese gardens, a Tasmanian fernery, a subantarctic plant house, conservatory, fuchsia house, vegetable patch, and lily pond.
