Hobart - Tasmania

Welcome to Hobart! Hobart is the second oldest city in Australia (after Sydney) and is the country’s smallest state capital (well, everything on mainland Australia has gotta be BIG). So, Hobart (and Tasmania) is small AND quaint and more British-like. It stretches out along both the broad estuary of the River Derwent, one of the deepest harbours in the world, linked by the Tasman Bridge. The old city center, with its wealth of colonial buildings, clusters around Sullivans Cove [see map of Hobart] on the west bank, backed by wooded slopes rising to the often snowcapped peak of the 1270m high Mount Wellington. Hobart’s rich heritage and setting makes it a real delight to explore. The city historically spread inland along the grid of streets leading uphill from the from the warehouses of Sullivans Cove, leaving a legacy of fine buildings. Individual monuments abound, but it is the almost European quality of the landscape as a whole that makes Hobart virtually unique in Australia. In contrast, there is the Wrest Point casino complex (Australia’s first casino) a mile away to remind visitors that there’s still the modern world! Without further fanfare, let’s [start virtual tour through Hobart] to see some of her attractions.
