  • Hobart and surrounds are well worth a visit. So much to see and do. Restaurants and seafood are 2nd to none. We stayed at the Grand Chancellor hotel right opposite the marina. From here you can walk to the Salamanca Markets, great shopping and gardens right in the centre of Hobart. At the restaurants directly opposite the hotel you can dine on the freshest local Tasmanian seafood and have the most wonderful breakfasts by the water. It was here I snapped the photo of the seal as he came to the surface with the fish in its mouth. Just a beautiful city
  • Stunning views of this historic sea port, city and mountain back drop. Spoiled for choice food wise/bars. Perfect for strolling.
