Hobart Travel Tips
Hobart is Australia's southernmost capital and second-oldest city. The fact that it is also the smallest is the key to its particular charm. A port city with a busy harbor, its mountain backdrop offers fine views over the beautiful Georgian buildings, numerous parks and compact suburbs below.
Hobart's rich colonial heritage and natural charms are accented by spirited festivals, top-notch restaurants and hip urban bars. On summer afternoons the sea breeze blows and yachts tack across the river; on winter mornings the pea-soup fog lifts to reveal the snow-capped summit of nearby Mt Wellington. You get a real sense of history in Hobart, and for walking, eating and just soaking up the atmosphere it can't be bettered.
