Holiday To Hobart

As the capital of Tasmania, the city of Hobart has become a low-key and luxurious destination. Not too long ago, though, this harbour city was a scrappy maritime haunt where early discovery expeditions first took shape.
Today, Hobart holidays are full of that same adventurous energy, from history tours to nature walks. Located on the shore of the River Derwent, Hobart is the perfect place to soak up the sun, fun and seriously gorgeous views—and we’re not just talking about the locals you’ll meet at the beach…but we are. Get the scoop on some smashing Hobart package deals right here and set sail for the island life—or, you know, hop on a plane!

Things to Do in Hobart

Start your Hobart holiday right outside the city. Just 20 km to the west, Mount Wellington is the perfect place to get the lay of the land. Just hop behind the wheel of a Hobart car hire deal from Wotif and enjoy the scenic route! Not feeling the call of the wild? Get your daily dose of natural beauty at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, just west of the Tasman Highway Bridge.

Ready to dive in…to the local history? South of the bridge, check out The Tench, a museum and historical experience built around the Old Hobart Gaol. During its early days, “Hobart Town” was mainly a penal colony, but The Tench eventually became a meeting place for the Supreme Court—this city sure loves to push the envelope. You’ll find another example of Hobart’s ever-onward attitude at the Mawson's Hut Replica Museum. In 1912, Douglas Mawson led an Antarctic expedition from the new nation of Australia, and you can discover what life was like for his crew right in the city centre.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

The next stop on your holiday in Hobart has got to be Salamanca Market. This open-air shopping destination is the place to fill up on local art, street treats and some excellent people-watching. Located on the northern edge of Battery Point, Salamanca Market is a great introduction to one of Hobart’s hottest neighbourhoods.

While you’re in Battery Point, stop for some seaside fine dining with a fantastic view. It’s easy to find good eats all over town, though, and you’ll never be too far from the main foodie thoroughfares, Elizabeth and Liverpool Streets. The local cuisine is loaded with fancy flavours, including saffron, black truffles and fresh meats and seafood. Yum!

When the sun calls it a night, the people of Hobart say, “Nah!” From hotel bars to waterfront hideaways, the drink scene in Hobart is a mix of resort town and fishing village. Join a pub crawl with new mates, sip to the sounds of the River Derwent or kick up your heels at a dance club. We know you’ll have fun in Hobart!
