Hobart is certainly a beautiful Australian city. It began its early life as a penal colony in 1803, making it the second oldest city in the country.

The city abounds in convict history, surrounded by the untamed wilderness that makes up much of Tasmania. See the Hobart Map Tasmania.

Sitting on the Derwent River and harbour, with many of the original Georgian sandstone buildings restored, the city makes for a historically picturesque place.

The Docks

The docks are a good place to start to explore Hobart. There are a number of museums, art galleries and attractions there, including the Maritime Museum of Tasmania.

Salamanca Place

Salamanca Place, a short walk from the docks is a great place to shop and has a lively weekend market and the Antartic Adventure, a museum that explores the Antartic experience.

Take some time to explore the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Resident in the oldest building in Hobart built in 1808, there is a wonderful Aboriginal display as well as colonial art.

See the Hobart City Map showing attractions and places to visit Hobart CBD Map.
