Hobart

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.
Get some cultural insight at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) and Cascades Female Factory Historic Site. Let the collections at Port Arthur Historic Site and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hobart: Cockle Creek (in Southport), South Cape Bay (in Southwest National Park) and Tinderbox Marine Reserve (in Tinderbox). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Seven Mile Beach, get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market, appreciate the extensive heritage of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
