A Perfect Blend of Colonial Heritage & Natural Charms

The first thing you notice when you step ashore in Hobart, Tasmania is the crystal clear fresh air. And with the abundance of national parks, forests, lakes, beaches, waterfalls, and mountains found in this tiny island state, it’s easy to see why.

The capital and most populous city in Tasmania, Hobart is filled with old world charm. Stroll along the historic waterfront—famous for its Georgian architecture—and take in the sights. Make your way to Salamanca Place filled with rows of sandstone buildings. Be sure to check out the market, if you happen to arrive on a Saturday. The buildings are filled with bars and restaurants, shops and boutiques, and galleries and craft shops—the perfect place to pick up a souvenir for your friends and family back home handmade by one of Hobart’s many local artisans.

Head just outside of the city to Mount Wellington, which serves as a picture perfect backdrop to the city, and do a little hiking. Or, to explore further, take a day trip to discover the vast beauty of Bruny Island, drive along the East Coast Escape to Freycinet National Park, or learn more about Tasmania’s past as a penal colony at Port Arthur Historic Site.
