Hobart & the South

Australia - Tasmania

A blend of heritage, scenery and culture with world-class activities and attractions.

Located at the Derwent River entrance and nestled amongst Kunanyi / Mount Wellington, Hobart, originally known by European explorers as Hobart Town, was settled in the early 1800s, and offers a distinctive blend of heritage, breathtaking landscape, and world-class cultural attractions.
Visit MONA the Old and New Art Museum. Wander along the waterfront famous for water views, fish punts and the arrival point for the annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Visit the historical IXL Jam Factory area or head towards Salamanca Place and the weekly markets, or pop over to the Louis Bernacchi bronze statue along Franklin Wharf, where the bronze seals and penguins reside.

A coastal drive will take you south of Hobart through Margate, Snug, Kettering, Birches Bay and around Cygnet and the beautiful Huon Valley. Explore Willie Smith’s Apple Shed, a museum dedicated to the Tassie apple industry, for its famous cider and hand-made gourmet cheeses.
