The Tasmania region
Hobart is Tasmania’s harbour capital, located in the south-east of the state at the foot of majestic Mount Wellington.
What’s special about Hobart?
•Australia’s smallest and most historic capital in close proximity to beautiful natural surrounds.
•Your start point to explore south east Tasmania.
•A provocative mix of historic and contemporary art and culture.
Is is the best that Tasmania has to offer – natural beauty, cultural heritage and the simple pleasures of good food and company.
Close to Hobart you can take a daring mountain bike descent down Mount Wellington or gain a few cooking tips from Rodney Dunn at the Agrarian Kitchen. Once you get a taste for Tasmania’s fine local produce, you’ll be tempted to venture over to Bruny Island where you’ll find Australia’s southernmost vineyard, oysters dripping with salt from the ocean and cheese so delicious you’ll wish you were a local.
But if you’re don’t feel like driving, take a luxury catamaran from Hobart’s waterfront down the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and you’ll arrive at Peppermint Bay. Here you’ll be fed Tasmania’s finest regional produce complemented with a fine Tasmanian wine and once again, you’ll wish you lived down the road.
•Visit Salamanca Market on Saturday
•Start the day with Zum Salamanca’s award winning finnen rye bread
•Sample the local brew at Cascade Brewery, 131 Cascade Road, South Hobart, TAS 7004
•Tour the famous Claremont Chocolate Factory and enjoy free samples
•Enjoy delicious cakes and bakery items from Jackman and Ross, 57 Hampden Road, Battery Point
or you can explore further a field, head to Port Arthur and delve into a convict past, stay the night and go on a ghost tour. A little further up the road you’ll reach Remarkable Cave. There are not many places on earth where you look through a cave and see ocean waves, but more than likely you’ll realise the local boys have beaten you there for an early-morning surf.
