Reviews of Hobart

Smaller and older than most other capital cities in Australia, Hobart has a quaint and historic appeal. Although I'm happy I went, I'd advice you not to spend too long near the CBD and explore the beautiful surroundings as well.

Interesting town in beautiful Tasmania, worth a visit in their summer time if you’re an outdoor adventurer there are many places for nature.

Hobart is the perfect spot to begin a Tasmania trip. Its small airport is located right outside of the center of the city. The waterfront area is small and walkable. Foodies will delight in exciting restaurants, lots of seafood, good coffee, and local wine. Art lovers should ride the ferry and the spend the day at MONA, the place that put Hobart on the travel map. While adventure enthusiasts will use the city as a jumping-off point for the rest of the state. Note: Despite its new reputation as an "it" spot, Hobart is still pretty sleepy. Even during the summer, everything closes early, and there's little nightlife.
