With its harbour side charm, fantastic food and wine and friendly locals, Hobart is a great holiday spot either for a short break or as the beginning of a longer Tasmanian adventure. From Hobart, you can discover the historic side of Tasmania, including Port Arthur. Mt Wellington creates a picturesque backdrop to this riverside city, which offers an interesting blend of history and cosmopolitan restaurants and bars. Take the time to sample the famous local beers and wines while you soak up the atmosphere. Make sure you include a weekend stay so you can enjoy the Salamanca Market, held every Saturday.
