About Hobart

Combining the old and new with the green and the blue into one highly enjoyable package, Hobart is a delightful city that walks a delicate line between maintaining its historical roots while serving as home to some of Australia’s most modern and upcoming attractions. With a seaside location and relatively laid-back atmosphere, Tasmania’s capital city is renowned Oz-wide as a destination that serves as a great getaway from the mainland.

Hobart is a destination that has begun to receive an increasing amount of both domestic and international attention in recent years, and there are multiple reasons for this; the city’s blend of boutique shopping, charming colonial style, verdant green surrounds and great local produce are large factors, while the recent establishment of the acclaimed Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) – with its striking array of artistic offerings – being the proverbial cherry on top of the sundae. Couple all these factors with striking natural features such as the majestically-looming peak of Mt Wellington that offers both incredible walking and vantage points for scenic views, as well as plenty of excellent daytrip destinations nearby such as the wildlife haven of Bruny Island, and it’s easy to see why.

Highly underrated for both what it offers visitors itself and what its surrounds can lead to, Hobart is one of Australia’s most up-and-coming destinations. Our advice: pay Tassie’s capital a visit before everyone else finds out. For more detailed information about Hobart, check out our most popular Hobart travel articles below.

Top 10 Things to Do

Hobart's range of experiences on offer for the first-time traveller strike a nice balance between the nature-oriented, the cultural, and various delights for foodies, as the Tasmanian capital's a microcosm of everything that makes the state great. With some truly unique offerings for both the laid-back and adventure-focused traveller, we've put together a list of 10 of the absolute must-do experiences in Hobart and its surrounding areas to fill the itineraries of travellers of all dispositions.

When to Visit

With a largely different climate from the Australian mainland - as well as a landscape that reflects this difference - Tasmania brings with it an entirely different set of desirable circumstances for a trip. The laid-back atmosphere of Hobart compared to other capitals blends with its lovely natural surrounds to make for an environment that shines in different ways at different periods throughout the year. When is the absolute best time to visit Hobart? We take a detailed look here. Read more >>

Tasmania with Kids

Tasmania may be a destination that’s largely based around nature, but that doesn’t mean it’s a state that has nothing to offer those travelling with little ones in tow. Tassie is a great place to take kids and was even voted in our “Top 3 Places to Travel in Australia with a Baby” back in 2013; add in its varied natural and man-made attractions that cater for children and there’s plenty to keep tykes smiling (and parents happy!). Here’s our list of the Top 10 Kids Attractions in Tasmania. Read more >>

Best Restaurants

Hobart and Tasmania in general is a destination that prides itself on dining, and is home to numerous regional locales that punch above their weight in terms of creating quality produce. The state owes a lot to its mixture of high grade soil, fresh air and longstanding farming techniques, and as a result chefs and food artisans that operate in the state have a great initial base from which to concoct their culinary delights. As Tasmania’s food hub, what are Hobart’s best restaurants? Find out here. Read more >>

Suggested Itineraries

Given the island state’s compact size, you’d be forgiven for thinking Tasmania lacks the quantity of things to do of its bigger brothers to the north. This couldn’t be further from the truth, however, as there’s an innumerable quantity of highlights packed into Tassie’s borders including some of Australia’s most spectacular nature. But with all its offerings, how is one to plan an ideal trip during their Tassie adventure? Check out our itineraries for stays of 2 to 5 days here. Read more >>
