Hobart and Surrounds
Hobart is the capital of Tasmania and sits amongst hills, bushland and water. The Derwent river is situated on one side of the city and is a great place to kayak or laze away the day by the shore. Salamanca Square is the place to sample Tasmania’s wonderful food and wine or you can soak up the nautical vibe of Hobart’s first suburb, Battery Point. Take a drive to the summit of one of Hobart’s mountains and explore the glorious views from atop. Mt Nelson is a 10 minute drive from Hobart city or for a more panoramic view, take a 30 minute drive through alpine forest to Mt Wellington. Discover history and learn about life as a mid-19th century prisoner at the Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula. Then stay at nearby Woodbridge and walk the sweeping beaches of Tasman National Park.
