Hobart

Tasmania's Capital City

Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent. Originally a penal colony, Hobart has become a thriving metropolis of nearly 217,000 people. Ideal as a base to explore the island of Tasmania, Hobart lies within easy reach of surrounding beaches, nature trails, and national parks. The wine industry has recently begun to flourish, with a number of well-respected vineyards opening up on the city outskirts. Hobart is in Greater Hobart.

Where to stay in Hobart

Hobart features a varied selection of budget and mid-range rooms located within striking distance of the central business district. You can choose from single rooms in small but comfortable hotels, or spacious suites with sweeping views of the Derwent River. If you want to avoid the central areas, look for rooms in North Hobart, where you can stay moments away from some of the city's finest restaurants. Throughout the city, backpacker hostels and pubs with rooms for rent provide another affordable alternative for those traveling on a shoestring.

Message from Tourism Australia
With daring art, a dynamic food scene and a wealth of natural attractions, Hobart is a small city with big ideas. Climb a mountain and view confronting modern art in the same day. Eat fish and chips from a floating fish punt in the docks, or dine in the finest and freshest of restaurants. Add thriving markets, an unsurpassed natural setting and a tangible sense of history, and Tasmania's capital city pretty much has it all. Hobart has direct flights from the cities of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. From Hobart Airport it's a 20 minute drive into the city.
