Tasmania’s capital Hobart is a picturesque and bustling small city, an outpost of creativity between the mountains and the sea at one of Tasmania’s most southern points. Once a penal colony, Hobart has developed into a city with a lot going on while retaining its heritage and peaceful setting. In the last ten years it’s proved to be an arts and dining hub, and a gateway to the natural wonders of the Tasmanian wilderness.
Hobart has some lovely holiday accommodation on offer from bed and breakfasts to stylish city apartments. A holiday house or other self catering accommodation could be a good option if you want to try cooking as much of the local produce as possible. A bed and breakfast or apartment in the centre of town would be more convenient if your visit is focused on the sights and bars of central Hobart.
