Hobart travelogue picture
Hobart is a small city in Tasmania and is full of very well preserved old buildings. It is located on a large harbour at the mouth of the Derwent River. To the west is a large mountain - Mount Wellington - which is the highest point in Australia that is in such close proximity to the sea. It can often be snowing on top of Mount Wellington in the middle of summer!

Favourite spots:
Salamanca Place on the waterfront is the entertainment centre of Hobart. It is lined by excellent restaurants and hosts some very busy (and excellent) markets every Saturday.

What's really great:
The Cadbury Chocolate Factory is in one of the Northern suburbs of the city. It is a delight to visit and you are VERY over chocolate by the time you finish the tour!

Within a short (up to 2 hours) drive of Hobart there are some beautiful places - Wineglass Bay in the Freycinet Peninsula, Port Arthur (originally a penal settlement), and loads of amazing coastal scenery with large rocky cliffs, caves and arches.

Salamanca Place is home to most of the Hobart restaurants and they cater for most tastes, especially modern Australian.
