    Cozy piece of Hobart. Not very special. Little village within the city. Old houses. Bakkerijtje is highly recommended, especially the pastries

    This is a must visit for heritage lovers. The styles of the buildings ooze history. The effort to walk around the whole area can be a bit overwhelming but it is definitely worth the time.  more »

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.
