Tasmania's Capital City
Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent. Originally a penal colony, Hobart has become a thriving metropolis of nearly 217,000 people. Ideal as a base to explore the island of Tasmania, Hobart lies within easy reach of surrounding beaches, nature trails, and national parks. The wine industry has recently begun to flourish, with a number of well-respected vineyards opening up on the city outskirts. Hobart is in Greater Hobart.

Message from Tourism Australia
With daring art, a dynamic food scene and a wealth of natural attractions, Hobart is a small city with big ideas. Climb a mountain and view confronting modern art in the same day. Eat fish and chips from a floating fish punt in the docks, or dine in the finest and freshest of restaurants. Add thriving markets, an unsurpassed natural setting and a tangible sense of history, and Tasmania's capital city pretty much has it all. Hobart has direct flights from the cities of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. From Hobart Airport it's a 20 minute drive into the city.
