    If you are interested in the history of Antartica, well worth a visit. Take the time to read all the stories, absorb and consider the achievements and what the men and dogs experienced. May seem small and not that great if the topic does not already interest you before going in.

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.
