Planning your trip

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.

Nestled amongst the foothills of Mt Wellington, Hobart combines heritage charm with a modern lifestyle in a setting of exceptional beauty. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet has called Hobart one of the top ten spots to visit in the world right now.

Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby.

With its captivating history, picturesque waterways, rugged mountains and gourmet experiences, the city has something for everyone.
