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.

  • Surprised to find that Saturday closing time is as early as 4pm. This gave us an hour to look around. But we did not stay that long as the layout was confusing and we were not offered any aid to help ...  more »

  • Had to find a way to spend a few hours so I dropped in. Finding a car park was easy the day I was there and it was not expensive for 2 hours. The building has been really well developed so you can still see the history. The exhibits are really well done if you take your time to explore.
  • Good place to relax and enjoy the exhibits. Just spend a few hours there and you will be surprised with the rich history and biodiversity described. The staff was friendly and offered to help us take a photo. The entry was also free!
  • Awesome interactive exhibitions. My favourite was an exhibition which tested your senses. You had to try and find 5 hidden drawers (one for each sense) which contained things that test your senses; and there were so many cool things in the jars! Very interactive and fun. They also had a kids colouring section. Definitely recommend visiting!
  • The TMAG has been updated over the last few years & now has many very interesting exhibits. It is also very wheelchair friendly for those that need that convenience.
  • Nice gallery. It's free so I'd recommend going because history is always fun. The downside and the reason I took away 1 star is also because its free though, since it's evident that the museum struggles to encompass any one topic completely.
