Opened in 1964, Tasman Bridge is one of the world’s earliest box-girder cantilever bridges, most famous for the fact that it collapsed one night in 1975. The rebuilt bridge is now the main road link between Hobart's eastern and western shores. Walk over the bridge for a sensational view of the blue Derwent River.

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.
