About Hobart

Tasmania is a little known island state to the south of Australia and home to the fearful Tasmanian devil. This Australian state is sprawling with wilderness and has been constantly growing as a tourist destination over the years owing to its mysterious appeal and little known Local Culture.

Hobart is the capital of Tasmania and with a population of just 250,000 it is small in scale as compared to some of the Australian mega cities. Hobart is considered to be one of Australia's coldest capital cities with a mild weather throughout the year. Mt Wellington in Battery Point is the highest point which offers fantastic bird’s eye views of of the picturesque surroundings of Hobart.

The city has deep historical roots which make it worth visiting. The buildings reflecting the Gregorian and Victorian style of architecture are a delight to the human eyes. These buildings date around 1830 and some are even older.

The Hobart city centre lies just 15 km away from the Hobart International Airport. You can easily reach here from the mainland Australia via plane. There is also option to go on board a cruise ship.

The best way to get around the city is to hire a bike. You can also move around in a taxi or public transport. Buses connect to almost all the landmarks of the city.

Mentioning the landmarks, Salamanca Market of the Hobart is a major attraction for not only tourists but locals too. Each Saturday morning is as lively as it can get. You can get your hands on items built with the state of the art craftsmanship.

The Battery Point lies behind this market which is a historical site. The buildings of this region are constructed with the golden sandstone which is magnificent in its own way.

The other major landmark of the city is the Botanical Garden. Close to the city centre, the garden is a chilly gift of nature crafted with human hands. If you like to see more of the nature in Hobart, (or want to fulfill the desire of your wine loving heart) then your best bet may be to visit the Wineries of the city.

Aside from these obvious tourist spots you can also go for a tour to the museums and art galleries. A city with historical significance like Hobart sure does carry some interesting items to showcase in the museum.

One can enjoy a long car ride while taking in the fresh air or take one of the shuttle services to reach here. Trekking and cycling are some of the best activities that can be indulged in. The viewing platform also makes for a romantic spot to enjoy with your loved ones especially while gazing at the night lights of the city down below.

For a slice of history, visit the historically rich Battery Point and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Salamanca Place is another attraction or rather, set of attractions near the Museum. This historic site consists of warehouses which were once used for the trade and commerce practices in earlier times and depict the best example of colonial type architecture of Australia.

The area is now dotted with pubs, bars restaurants, hotels and art galleries. MONA is an all in one destination around 15 miles away from the city centre. It houses a Museum which showcases both antique and modern art.

One can enjoy various theatrical performances as well as the music concerts and seasonal festivals that take place throughout the year. The campus also has an amazing restaurant to dine in and markets to shop from. Hobart offers a unique experience and is a perfect blend of raw wilderness and city life.

Local Culture - The culture of the region is reflected in its festivals and streets. The heritage and sceneries of the city mixed with the modern lifestyle of the people put forth a beautiful picture. MONA- Museum of Old and New Art is proof of Tasmania's and Hobart's tryst with Culture and Art. The island state capital is a very culturally inclined city and regularly celebrates occasions to mark culturally important days and events.

Dining - The Dining scene in Hobart is ever expanding and quite welcoming. One can find a plethora of options to choose from. Seafood is the specialty of Hobart. Tasmanian lobster is served in almost all the restaurants. Also the restaurants range from cheap to lavish. Seafood to Chinese to even Nepalese cuisine is on offer at the various eating places spread across the city.Battery Point and Salamanca Place are the main hubs of eateries though.

Things To Keep In Mind - Hobart tends to get chilly and it is suitable to carry light woollens along. Day time is safe and sound but nights may be tricky. Violent crimes are almost nonexistent but you may fall victim to theft or robbery if you choose to neglect the safety guides.
