Tasmania's Capital City

Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent.
Let the collections at Richmond Gaol and Lady Franklin Gallery capture your imagination. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Salamanca Arts Centre and The Wicked Cheese Co.. Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Russell Falls (in Mount Field National Park) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). There's still lots to do: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. David's Cathedral, take a leisurely stroll along Constitution Dock, and wander the streets of Sullivans Cove.
