A hire car from Hobart Airport opens the capital city's many activities, from day trips to Mt Wellington and the Mona Museum, to the scenic drive down to Port Arthur. Hobart is full of restaurants, cafes, pubs, markets, parks, nature walks and more. It has family-friendly activities for everyone, such as the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, Wellington Park, and educational tours of Hobart's long colonial and Aboriginal history. You can also take a trip to the stunning Bruny Island, just a 45-minute drive from central Hobart and a short ferry ride, where you can try the island’s world-class produce (pay particular attention to the wine and oysters).
A pleasant 30-minute drive from central Hobart leads you to Wellington Park, home to Mt Wellington. The park is a natural refuge from everyday life, filled with unique birds, green forests, trickling creeks and waterways. However, if you plan to trek the mountain itself, remember to pack the car for all weather. The summit sits at a dizzying 1,400 metres high, and is often well below freezing at the top, so it's best to be prepared. The plus side being, if weather permits, you can take in the stunning views of Hobart and the surrounding area. The park offers free entry, a number of picnic spots, barbeques for hire and toilet facilities. Visit the Wellington Park website for tips on their bushwalking trails, and make sure you have the right gear if you're planning on tackling one of the more challenging trails. But the park has a large variety of walks, from easy and casual, to challenging for even the more experienced outdoorsman. With an estimated 300,000 people visiting the park each year, it's not hard to see why this slice of nature continues to be popular.
As mentioned above, one of the most popular trips from Hobart is the pristine Bruny Island. The island is known for its incredible food including oysters, wine, cheese, berries and whiskey. See wild white wallabies and other endangered animals. Bruny Island offers boat tours, kayaking, fishing and bushwalking as its mainstay outdoor activities. It is recommended to spend at least 2-3 days to experience the island fully. With a number of world-class restaurants serving local produce, you will want more time on Bruny just to make your way through the menus.
You will need to take your car on a ferry to Bruny Island, and with no public transport on the Island, if you want to experience it at your leisure, car hire is a must.
Hobart city is an excellent location for a holiday just by itself. With the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens offering 14 hectares of unique flora and fauna collections, it's easy to become lost in nature right on the outskirts of the CBD. We recommend the 50-minute walking tour that departs from the hub each day. Learn about the garden's collections and the history of the site itself.
If you're looking to delve into the city's culture, the best place to start is Salamanca Place. It serves as the cultural heart of Hobart, acting as the centre for food, art, theatre, galleries, bars, pubs and market stalls. Make sure you don't fill up on food before you go, as the stalls offer fresh produce from farmers right to your plate. Saturday is the best time to go as the market is open and in full swing. Enjoy live music, port views, delicious food and a great atmosphere.
No matter how you plan to spend your Tassie Holiday, Hobart is a great start and a must-see location.
