To start planning your vacation to The Henry Jones Art Hotel
Fashioned from the colonial warehouses lining Hobart’s beautiful waterfront, this stunning hotel is an icon of modern design and as much a work of art as the ever changing contemporary art it showcases; exhibiting original artworks by emerging and established Tasmanian artists. An unexpected and accomplished combination of antique and ultra modern, the Henry Jones has won awards for everything from its restaurant to its design.
The rooms are spacious with modern bathrooms, some featuring overflowing spa baths, city or mountain views. There is a lively bar area which has live bands on the weekends and a great place to catch up for a coffee in the afternoons is at the Jam Packed Cafe.
Hobart's waterfront is a buzzing area in the evenings where you are spoiled for choice when it comes to dining, and the selection of restaurants and bars serve up all kinds of locally produced foods and wines. The iconic Salamanca outdoor market is only a couple of minutes' stroll away, which really comes alive on Saturdays bringing Hobart's waterfront alive with the colors, sounds and smells of Tasmania.
Rooms each have their own individual character, with heritage features and wooden timbers sitting alongside contemporary elements and modern art. A number of the rooms and suites boast views over the waterfront and come recommended.

When to go
Tasmania has a temperate climate with 4 distinct seasons. Warm summer days from December to February and sometimes snow in the cooler months of June to September. The best time to visit Tasmania is between October and April, when the weather is at its best. By May, nights are getting cold and days are getting shorter. Winters (June-Aug), especially in the high country, can be quite harsh- though that's the best time to curl up in front of a blazing fire.
