Hobart, Tasmania’s capital, is located between the beautiful peak of Mount Wellington and the mouth of the Derwent River. Australia's second-oldest city after Sydney, it's an Australia vacation highlight for history and nature lovers alike, with quaint settlers’ cottages and grand mansions dotting its beautiful surrounds. 

Disused warehouses have been converted into dockside cafes, artists’ studios, and restaurants. Try the fresh seafood at one of Hobart’s waterside restaurants while watching the colourful spinnakers bobbing on the water. Take a drive up to Mount Wellington where you can have a bird’s eye view of the surrounding area. Art is another major part of cultural life in Hobart, with the often irreverent Museum of Old and New Art being praised among the finest modern and contemporary art museums in the world.

Not too far away, Richmond is a picturesque, early Australian colonial village on the banks of the Coal River. It includes both Australia’s oldest jail and its oldest bridge. Not far away is the Port Arthur UNESCO heritage historic site, with its well preserved penal colony buildings. The surrounding Tasman peninsula also offers spectacular clifftop walks through pristine wilderness.
