HOBART: the largest & oldest

HOBART is the capital city as well as the largest city in Tasmania. It has many historic attractions. From HOBART CITY you are about 60 minutes or less from attractions describe in my information pages: BOTANIC GARDENS, BELLERIVE, the SOUTH of HOBART, the NORTH of HOBART, Mt WELLINGTON, RICHMOND, MONA, HUONVILLE, PONTVILLE, PORT ARTHUR, BRUNY ISLAND, Mt FIELD National Park and NEW NORFOLK.

SIGHTS: Hobart is rated as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is set around a beautiful bay and Mt Wellington towers over it. People interested in natural beauty will have a lot to see.

Hobart is also a state capital, so that it has other assets that similar size cities do not have. It was established in 1804, just 16 years after Sydney, which makes it the second oldest capital city. However, unlike most capital cities, Hobart City has kept its old charm and still has 90 buildings classified by the National Trust. This means that there is a lot to see for history enthusiasts.

There is so much to see that I have divided Hobart into the following information pages: HOBART CITY (This includes the old, convict Hobart Town.), the BOTANIC GARDENS, BELLERIVE, SOUTH of HOBART, NORTH of HOBART, Mt WELLINGTON, PONTVILLE and RICHMOND. These page divisions reflect possible touring strategies for your day visits, as you are not going to be able to see Hobart in detail in any single day.

Unlike other Australian cities, Hobart has developed very slowly and, as a result, has retained much of its early architecture. You can see a mixture of Georgian, Victorian, Art Deco and Modern styles. The corner of MURRAY & MACQUARIE Streets is the only place in Australia, where all four corners have their original colonial buildings extant.

There is much to see in Hobart. However, the unique architecture is concentrated close to the HOBART CBD. A visit to nearby BATTERY POINT and CONSTITUTION DOCK is also highly recommended.

The other great attractions of the area include historic RICHMOND, the towering heights of Mt WELLINGTON, the new MONA museum. You should also note that PORT ARTHUR and the beautiful Huon Estuary near SOUTHPORT are both only 90 minutes away.

Travelling beyond Hobart to the north, south or east is also quite easy, so Hobart could easily be your base from which to tour south eastern Tasmania.
