Hobart has come a long way since its murky beginnings as a penal colony, its charming streets are now lined with galleries and delicatessens while bustling cafes make the most of the sunshine on the scenic waterfront. Watching over the city, the rugged peak of Mt Wellington offers beautiful views and hiking in the crisp mountain air to work up an appetite for the superb restaurants below.
After delving into the lush forests and cragged boulders of Mt Wellington, head to the waterfront for a reviving glass of crisp wine or local craft beer, or discover new artists in one of many galleries and explore the city’s rags to riches history.
