HOBART

Hobart is a world-class destination with its captivating history, picturesque harbour, rugged mountains, gourmet food and wine experiences and hip arts and cultural scene – the city has something for everyone.

Having Hobart and the south’s main attractions within close proximity, lets you experience the most of this beautiful region even on the shortest of stays. A day could start, captivated by our nation’s earliest and darkest times at the Port Arthur Historic site, and finishing on top of the world on the peaks of Mount Wellington (kunanyi), overlooking the stunning harbour city down below. Tasting and sampling some of nature’s delicacies of oysters and abalone washed down with fine sparkling wine – and that’s all before you even sit down to your evening meal in one of Hobart’s acclaimed eateries.

It’s the combination of stylish venues with breath-catching views, Hobart’s thriving food and wine scene, arts culture, and an enviable events calendar, including Dark MOFO, Mona Foma and the Taste of Tasmania, that has everyone raving.
