Hobart information

Experiences in Australia

Hobart sits between Mt Wellington and the Derwent estuary. A good base for southern Tasmania. The population of Hobart is around 250,000.

Hobart attractions

Downtown Hobart is around Sullivans Cove which is on the Derwent river and busy area for ships of all sizes. And the end point of the famous Sydney to Hobart sailing race held every January.

In the picturesque harbour are boats selling fish and chips. There are also cruises operating from Hobart Harbour and, from the southern part of the harbour, ferries to Wrest Point Casino. On a fine day one can enjoy sitting here and absorbing the view and the activity.

Salamanca Place is the heart of the tourisrt area and consists of a splendid row of Georgian sandstone warehouses dating back to the 1830s, now converted into cafes, craft shops, galleries and restaurants.

Hobart information

Central Hobart is an easy place to walk around and distances are not big.
