Top 10 Things to Do in Hobart

top 10 things to do in Hobart, Australia


You may have booked a motorhome hire in Hobart, what next? Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania is the second oldest city in Australia. Hobart is a very special place and a fantastic destination for a variety of attractions and activities either in the surrounding world heritage wilderness areas or in the city itself. If you love the sound of a walk-able city centered around a harbour with historic neighborhoods, historic buildings and a good local vibe, pack your bags as whatever your interest, you’ll find plenty to do in the area.

Salamanca Markets

Salamanca Place is a row of old sandstone warehouses that are ideally situated along the waterfront. This area was once the buisness headquarters for Hobart’s wealthy merchants but the whole area fell into disrepair until the late 1960’s according to my guidebook. Apparently, a group of artists met to turn one of the warehouses into a working space. A revival soon followed. Today, Salamanca place is the spirtual home of Hobart’s small but vital creative community and it is lined with galleries, cafés and restaurants, and of course, the ever popular Salamanca Market.

Richmond has a model village named “Old Hobart Town” that has been largely reconstructed from original plans that depicts Hobart as it was in the 1820’s. Feel like a giant as you weave yourself through the maze of exhibits. Thought it was cheesy but it turned out quite fine. […]

Parks / Gardens / National Parks

One of Hobart’s treasures is St. David’s Park. Located in the city center, and just off the famed Salamanca street, it is a haven in a city that hardly needs one yet so beautifully green. Having visited in the summer, we were also lucky to see most of the park’s flowers in bloom. Try to include this park on your route when heading towards Battery Point. If memory serves me correctly, this park was once the city of Hobart’s cemetary. […]

Suburbs, Hobart

We brought our visitors to Sandy Bay Beach for a quick bite after meeting them at their hotel in Hobart as they were really hungry after their flight. The nearest lovely but quiet place to have it was Sandy Bay. Our son goes to the University ofTasmania in Sandy Bay and we often come here when we take him there on days that he’d have a few hours of classes and we could wait here and enjoy ourselves. […]
