Hobart Holiday Packages
A sophisticated urban vibe, historic charm and
a vibrant food scene
Wedged within a wilderness of mountains and rivers, Hobart’s city-centre mix of colonial architecture and reinvented industrial buildings is a surprise package. Behind the postcard views and bright sails on the water are moody bars, swanky restaurants, and the unmissable Mona – Museum of Old and New Art.
Passionate producers and inventive chefs, paired with the celebrated wine regions a stone’s throw from the city, have made the city an exciting food destination.
Hobart puts you in easy reach of some of Australia’s most dramatic natural landscapes, where you can hike, kayak, mountain bike or take a wildlife cruise.
Things to do
Mona, an adult Disneyland
Established by eccentric billionaire (and Hobart boy) David Walsh in 2011, Mona is a quirkily personal, thought provoking, sometimes shocking, always fascinating cultural icon. It’s a kind of adult theme park, full of bizarre, confusing and hilarious things to make you gasp, think and smile. Most visitors make a dramatic approach to the imposing cliff-set structure on the special River Derwent catamaran from Hobart city centre.
A foodie paradise
Hobart enjoys pole position for the fresh and artisanal produce of Tasmania’s breadbasket, the Huon and Derwent Valleys. Experience the vibrant local paddock-to-market scene at the Sunday Farm Gate Market opens in new window, where farmers and makers sell their goods direct. Make a reservation at one of the city’s fabulous restaurants like Franklin, Templo or Faro (at Mona); and book a class at the Agrarian Kitchen Cooking School opens in new window, close by in Lachlan.
An island of tipples
Hobart is closer to its surrounding vineyards than any other Australian capital, and you can taste some premier cold-climate wines on the Southern Wine Trail opens in new window. The whisky industry is young but celebrated, and stand-out stops on the Whisky Trail, like Sullivans Cove and Lark Distillery, are in Hobart or close by. If you’re a craft beer fan, tour the region’s handcrafted beers on the Beer Trail opens in new window or follow the Cider Trail opens in new window – they don't call this 'the Apple Isle' for nothing!
Hit the wild side
A short drive from the city, Mount Wellington’s criss-crossed walking and mountain biking tracks offer amazing city views. Further afield, the Tasman Peninsula is home to iconic sights like The Blowhole and Tasman Arch, and eco-cruises to the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest sea cliffs to see dolphins, fur seals, albatross and migrating whales.
When To Go
Hobart is a great place to visit at any time of the year, though the mercury drops significantly in winter. The warmest time to come is during the summer months (December–February), although evenings can be cool. The winter months (May–August), when the days are shorter and temperatures can range from 4–8°C, are quieter.
There are festivals throughout the year, with MONA’s summer MONA FOMA festival of music and art in January and kooky Dark Mofo winter festival in June the most highly anticipated. Hobart buzzes in summer, especially around New Year’s Day with the arrival of the Sydney to Hobart yacht fleet and the Summer Festival of theatre, jazz, food and wine.Back to top
Many attractions in Hobart are within easy walking distance of the city centre. If you prefer to ride, Metro buses opens in new window ply routes linking north, east and south Hobart. The free Hobart Hopper opens in new window shuttle bus stops at sites in the city centre, Salamanca and the waterfront, running on a continuous 10-minute loop between 8.30am and 4pm.Back to top
