Home > Tasmania > Hobart
 

Tasmania ís capital city is an intriguing blend of heritage and lifestyle, scenery and vibrant culture. Hobart is warm sandstone, bright spinnakers on the water, fish punts at the docks, the slap of halyards on masts, coffee under the striped sun umbrellas of Salamanca, an occasional frosting of snow on Mt Wellington, bush tracks and birdsong.

Hobart is defined by the river and sea. Take a harbour cruise, or drive to the summit of Mt Nelson or Mt Wellington, and youíll understand our maritime focus - suburbs hug the Derwent River, city buildings cluster around the docks and the estuary broadens into Storm Bay and the distant sea. Twenty-five kilometres and 100 years from the busy city is the historic town of Richmond - in the narrow cells of the old Richmond Gaol, Tasmania ís convict past seems just a clink of chains away. Close by are the neat vineyards and wineries of the Coal River Valley, home of superb cool-climate wines.
