Welcome to part 4 of cruising Australia today’s post is all about Hobart Capital of Tasmania, full of historic charm with a twist of modern!
It’s been a few years since I visited Hobart, it was cheaper than all other Australian Cities and still remains this way.
What I like best about Hobart is the oldie worldie charm and feel about it. Head towards Kelly Steps and visit Battery Point, full of charm with many of the cottages dating back to the 1830’s which remain intact. Walking guides are available from the local post office for a fee. Salamanca Place is the place to be on Saturdays, where the busy markets are held and has an array of bars, restaurants, cafes, shops and art centres.
MONA (Museum of old and new art) – Perched on the shore of the River Derwent (30 minute ferry ride from Hobart) is a highly acclaimed must do. It’s received media attention from around the globe as a must see in Australia. This is a private collection up for public viewing. This is one mans idea of what art is.
For those who enjoy walking visit Mount Wellington (10 minutes from Hobart city centre) plays host to a range of short and long walks. Takes in the amazing views along the way and various lookout points.
Tasmania has an array of wine growing areas. These can either be booked in advance as an excursion or locally.
Also worth seeing:
Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
Meet a little Devil at the Tasmanian Devil conservation park
If you want to chill out Hobart is home to some stunning sandy beaches, most popular being Seven Mile Beach.
Interesting fact: From Hobart’s port the next stop is Antarctica
