Hobart and the South

Tasmania's capital city and Australia's second oldest; Hobart is a fantastic base to explore the awesome family attractions. Occupied by the British Colony in 1804, the area has been home to Indigenous Tasmanians for over 40,000 years.

The majority of visitors arrive in Hobart via plane and commence their journey from the city. With one of Tasmania's two international airports, Hobart provides a feel for the rich heritage, natural wonders and unique wildlife that feature in the state's most loved destinations. If staying in the city for a few nights, or even close by, the short walk to Salamanca is a must, as is a walk along the marina. The city is filled with heritage buildings, parks and museums; the family won't have to go far to have a great day whilst planning your itinerary around the state.

Main attractions for Hobart and the surrounds include the Salamanca Market, Mt Wellington, Cascades Female Factory, Royal Botanical Gardens, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, ZooDoo, Tasmanian Transport Museum, The Shot Tower, Waterworks Reserve and much, much more!
