Things to see and do in Hobart
Hobart is truly breathtaking, enclosed between the impressive Mt Wellington and the quaint Derwent River. In every street and around every corner, the strong colonial heritage and maritime past is sketched in the city's architecture and monuments. Hobart is Australia's second oldest city, so it's no surprise! Bushwalking on Mt Wellington's trails is the perfect way to view Hobart from above and it's surrounding areas.
Meandering along the waterfront, it's clear that the heart and life of the city lies by the river, with fun markets, delicious eateries and hip bars and cafes to try close by. At the Salamanca Market, the best produce from the local area is available for your perusal. While in Hobart, visit Battery Point a true nod to 19th century architecture, with cottages lining the heritage maritime village. Try some ale at one of the ale houses. Aye, aye, it's a tasty brew!
