Welcome to Hobart

Mt. Wellington at sunset, Hobart tasmania

Located in the south-east of the state at the foot of majestic Mount Wellington, Hobart is Tasmania’s harbour capital and Australia’s second oldest capital city. Hobart has many historic sandstone buildings which are still in use today. At Salamanca Place you will find 19th century waterfront warehouses dating back to the 1830s whaling days. Today, they are filled with cafes, restaurants, galleries and art studios - an ideal place to wander or enjoy alfresco dining. Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby.
