Country Information Hobart, Tasmania’s capital city
The City of Hobart is one of the most beautiful and liveable Cities in the world. As the second oldest city in Australia the City offers a wonderful blend cultural heritage and beautiful environment as well as a low stress lifestyle.
Nestled under Mt Wellington on the Derwent River Hobart is renowned for its heritage buildings, beautiful parks, fine restaurants, the Salamanca Markets and its Festivals. Hobart is the gateway to the best quality food and boutique wines and the famous Tasmanian salmon, crayfish and cheeses, raspberries and strawberries, beer and chocolates. This unique setting provides for an ambience that you will not find in another city anywhere in the world.
It is a city rich in maritime history, and is shaped and defined by water. A diverse range of craft including Antarctic supply vessels, sailing dinghies, catamarans, kayaks, ocean racing yachts, fishing boats and square riggers trawl the waters of the Derwent. Beyond is Storm Bay and the vast Southern Ocean.
The Port is a central focus for the city providing both a busy commercial hub and also a place where residents and visitors like to spend time strolling along the docks talking with the local fishermen, watching the large cargo vessels load and unload or sampling some fine Tasmanian produce at one of the many cafes and restaurants located around the cove.
Hobart has approximately 22,000 trees in its parks and streets and the backdrop to Hobart is Mount Wellington, which is 1270m high. It is only about a 30 minute drive to the top of the mountain from the City centre.
