Destination guide

Doing the time of your life in historic Hobart

Sure, it started out as a penal colony, but nowadays NOT visiting Hobart would be the real crime. The capital city of Tasmania, Hobart's a bustling metropolitan hub that sees more than a million visitors every year, and you can find everything from museums and 19th-century buildings to funky shops, buzzy dining and a number of sandy beaches. You won't have any trouble finding central Hobart vacation rentals close to local landmarks like the Tasman Bridge, Mount Wellington or the bustling Salamanca Market.

Things to do

Get your culture fix in Hobart's museums

With a wealth of 19th-century architecture and countless art and culture institutions throughout the city, you won't have any trouble finding worthwhile sights in Hobart. If you're looking to immerse yourself in the local culture, head to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Here, you can find a number of permanent and rotating exhibits of art and cultural artifacts from throughout the region, country and globe. Or you can check out the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, where you can explore 14 hectares of landscaped gardens with plants from all over the world.


Daylife, nightlife and everything in between in Hobart

A major vacation destination that hosts almost 2 million visitors annually, you'll never have a dull moment in Hobart. The city's scenic, sandy beaches are a sure bet, and you'll find plenty of space for swimming, sunbathing, boating and more at the charming Long Beach in the nearby suburb of Sandy Bay. Fashionistas can peruse the main shopping districts along Elizabeth and Liverpool streets in downtown Hobart, and you can find plenty of buzzy nightlife and live entertainment venues in the area, too.


A tan for all seasons – Hobart's pleasant year-round weather

Hobart has a temperate oceanic climate, with warm summers, cool winters and moderate rainfall and humidity throughout the year. Summer highs hover around 22 degrees in January and February, while average winter temperatures range from 9 to 12 degrees in June and July. Despite the mild weather in town, nearby Mount Wellington sees regular snowfall and sub-zero temperatures throughout the winter months. Summer is the busiest time of year in the area, and you'll be most likely to score killer deals on Hobart vacation rentals during the slower winter months.

Natural highlights

Mountains to the sea – the highs and lows of Hobart scenery

Hobart lies along the estuary of the River Derwent, just north of the Tasman Sea. You can find plenty of islands in the bay, as well as sandy beaches, rocky shoreline and a number of protected coves and inlets. The city itself is fairly dense and urban, with a bustling central business district that gives way to modern suburbs further out from the city centre. To the west, the 1,271-metre-high Mount Wellington offers hiking and cycling trails, and you can find a number of Hobart vacation rentals with scenic mountain views.
