Accommodation and Holiday Information for Hobart and South Tasmania
Hobart is situated on the large island of Tasmania and is the southernmost capital city in Australia. Straddling the breathtaking Derwent River, Australia's deepest harbour, Hobart is without doubt one of most beautiful areas in both Tasmania and Australia, with the city's background being dominated by the nearby Mount Wellington.
Founded in 1803, Hobart boasts numerous heritage and tourism areas just waiting to be explored, and although it has become known for being a particularly dry area of Australia, the city does contain some lush national parks and botanical gardens. The city regularly features many exciting festivals and events, including the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, a spectacular race that finishes at the waterfront at the end of each year.
Central Hobart is fairly easy to navigate and is arranged in a gridwork, being centred around the Elizabeth Street Mall, which is home to the tourist information centre and also the main post office. To the southeast is the Battery Point area, where you will find Princes Park and the waterfront Salamanca Place, the latter of which is lined by a series of attractive Georgian warehouses, showcasing traditonal colonial Australian architecture at its best.
To the east are the wineries of the Coal River Valley and further on is Tasman National Park, with its spectacular coastline and historic convict sites.
Heading west, the road follows the beautiful River Derwent through the Derwent Valley and on to the grandeur of Lake St Clair in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
And if you're travelling north to Launceston, the Midland Highway, dubbed the Heritage Highway, offers many opportunities to learn of Tasmania's heritage past, with homesteads and country cottages revealing the state's early colonial history along the way.
