Hobart: Where Sea and Sky Meet in Tasmania

Main Image

Hobart is not only the capital but is also the largest city in Tasmania. It is well-know among adventure-seekers as the perfect compromise between ocean-front and mountaintop vacations, as Hobart's ideal location offers both.

The city is nestled at the base of Mount Wellington - this stately landmark rises proudly over the city and offers visitors the chance to drive to its peak (via a 22 km protected road), make sure you bundle up to enjoy the snowy peaks and chilly winds sweeping across the mountaintop, all while feasting your eyes on the stunning panorama below. 

The best part about Hobart is that, the day after you tour the mountaintop, you can be enjoying one of the city's many beaches. The abundant coves and harbors on Hobart's shores lend themselves to a busy aquatic life, enjoy the activity in the harbors watching yachts enter and exit then take full advantage of the many hiking and walking trails that wind along the coastline. You'll be able to enjoy abundant wildlife, stunning plant life and long stretched of deserted beach that give you the space to relax and enjoy all the riches of nature. 

For fun inland, check out Hobart's bustling nightlife, myriad of theatre workshops and tours, art galleries, elegant cathedrals and churches as well as their historical sites and all the delicious restaurants the city has to offer! One this is for sure, regardless of what tourist attractions you choose, a vacation in this hidden gem of Tasmania will be something you remember for a lifetime.
