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.

We’re a specialist industry super fund dedicated to people who provide some of the best health and community services in the world. With more than 880,000 members and 50 billion invested globally on their behalf, we’ve learned a thing or two about looking after our members. We speak up for others. We stand alongside our partners and members, advocating for a super system that better caters for people working in your sector. And, more broadly, women and First Australians. As an industry super fund we work for members — not shareholders. We keep our fees down, costs low, and provide commission-free advice. It’s all part of the service. That way more money stays in our members’ super accounts working for their future.
Health Professionals Bank is Australia’s first and only bank dedicated exclusively to health professionals and their families. We’re a new bank, but we’re also part of something bigger. We belong to Teachers Mutual Bank Limited, an organisation with over 200,000 members and assets nearing $8billion — and with over 50 years’ experience in servicing essential workers and understanding their financial needs. We’re also slightly different to many of the other banks. We’re a mutual bank. That means that when you join Health Professionals Bank, you become more than a customer — you become a member. You become part of a bank that’s owned and run by its members, where everyone gets an equal share, and an equal say.
People place their trust in nurses and midwives. The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) exists to make sure that the standards and practice of the professions are meeting that trust. The NMBA:
- sets evidence-based, contemporary standards, codes and guidelines for nurses and midwives
- takes action on behalf of people being cared for, nurses, midwives or managers who raise a concern about standards of care,
- works with nurses and midwives to improve practice.
