Hobart holidays

Hobart is the smallest of Australia’s state capitals, and the only island state. It is situated on the River Derwent and features the world’s second deepest natural port. With its wealth of historic colonial buildings, the city centre clusters around Sullivans Cove and the wooded slopes rising to the often snow-capped peak of Mount Wellington provides the backdrop. Its limited size, rich architectural heritage and beautiful setting make Hobart a delight to explore. Notable visits in Hobart include Salamanca Market, which operates each Saturday morning in the heart of the city centre and Mona: Museum of Old and New Art, one of the most controversial private collections of modern art and antiquities in the world. You can also go to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, which has a fascinating permanent exhibit on Tasmanian Aboriginal culture and history.
