Places to stay

With water views on one side and sandstone Georgian façades on the other, Salamanca is home to a range of boutique accommodation or contemporary hotels. Positioned close to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and a few minutes’ walk from Salamanca Place is the stunning Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel. Whether travelling for business or leisure, the serviced apartments offer a unique place to stay in Hobart. If you’re after a hotel located close to the cruise terminal and short walk to the city, the brand new luxury Maqc 1 hotel is a superb choice for a romantic weekend getaway. Art enthusiasts wishing to stay at MONA will relish in the luxury pavilions, each named after an influential Australian artist or architect.

If you simply want to discover Tasmania, there’s a range of bed and breakfasts, budget conscious motels, backpackers and plenty of Airbnb’s through North Hobart and Battery Point. Take an easy drive further out of the city to visit Hobart’s elegant cool climate vineyards, with beautiful guest accommodation located close by in the Huon Valley and Coal River areas. Whatever you do, pop Hobart on your must-see places to visit in Australia. 

Things to do

Hobart is a compact city, so it’s easy to tick off a swag of sites and activities. Stroll from the city centre to the heritage neighbourhood of Battery Point, cruise the River Derwent, and shop for collectables in Salamanca Place – all in the same afternoon. Set aside some time to see MONA, the ground-breaking Museum of Old and New Art - getting there is half the fun, aboard the Mona Roma ferry.

Travellers heading beyond the city will find craft-beer breweries and oyster farms, vineyards and beaches, cider houses and mountain trails – all in close proximity to Hobart. Take in the views from the summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington, then a few minutes later kick off your shoes and walk the local beaches.

Hobart is known for its seasonal weather – sometimes all in a day.
