Interesting Facts About Hobart

Nestling between the lofty heights of Mt Wellington and the sparkling estuary of the Derwent, Hobart is a city that’s shaped and defined by hills, bushland and water. Sunshine on convict-chipped stone, whitecaps riffling the breezy river, the twinkle of lights in the branches of Salamanca’s plane trees, a spectrum of fine flavours from southern Tasmania’s wonderful food and wine – they’re just some of the things that make a short break in Hobart a great idea.

Hobart is the perfect base for explorations of southern Tasmania, with all the region’s attractions accessible in an easy day’s touring. Take your RV / Caravan or Motorhome and tour Hobart you will be glad you did.

If you’re visiting with kids or you just want to keep up with your fitness program, call in to the Hobart Aquatic Centre, on the edge of the city near the Cenotaph. This world-class complex includes two main pools, waterslide and fun pool, toddler pool and a range of resort-style facilities including health & fitness centre, cafe and child care – all indoors in a pleasant sub-tropical environment, all year-round.

For a wide view of this scenic city, take a drive to the summit of one of Hobart’s mountains. Mt Nelson is a 10 minute drive from the city – the Signal Station on top was one of a chain of semaphore masts that relayed messages between Hobart and Port Arthur. For a much wider panoramic view of the city, river and estuary, it’s a half-hour drive through alpine forest to the 1271 metre pinnacle of Mt Wellington – on a clear day the view extends from Ben Lomond in north-east Tasmania to the ranges of the Southwest.
