Top 5 Places to Visit in Hobart – Must visits on a beautiful setting

With mountains, rivers and rich culture and history, Hobart is indeed a great holiday destination in Australia. There are many things to be explored including the museums and the galleries and this is the reason why many tourists flock here during their vacations.


Mount Wellington

Mount Wellington (also known as Kunanyi) is one of the most popular attractions in Hobart. This 1270-meter high mountain is dusted with snow even when it's the summer, and the views you get once you reach the summit are just priceless. There is also an observation shelter at the Pinnacle in which you can browse some old photographs in addition to enjoying all the breathtaking views of the city. As there are frequent icy winds, please do not forget to take your warm clothes with you when you go to enjoy your moments in the Mount Wellington.


The Salamanca Place and the Market

Exploring the Salamanca Place means indulging in its heritage charm, and that's indeed a lovely thing to do in Hobart. The historic sandstone buildings you find here belong to the era of 1835-1860 and in these buildings, you are able to find diverse cafes, antique shops and even restaurants to please your senses. On Saturdays, you can also enjoy the Salamanca Markets where over 300 vendors come in and sell almost everything ranging from woodcrafts to fresh fruits and vegetables.



If you are spending a family vacation at one of the Hobart hotel apartments you should definitely visit the MONA with your kids. Wondering what this MONA means? It stands for the Museum of Old and New Art and it is also one of the most sought after attractions in Hobart. This museum was opened in 2011 and it provides a completely different experience. All modern arts and antiques here are housed underground and what you can view are the portable touch screen devices that are also able to provide all interpretations. There is also a nice library, a cinema and also a restaurant to serve its guests.


Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

Be closer to nature while you are spending a great leisure holiday at a venue the likes of Somerset on the Pier Hobart. You have the perfect option- the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens which provides free entrance! Especially if you visit Hobart in the fall, make sure you don't miss the chance of witnessing a paradise-like scenery here also with glimpses of the Derwent River.


Tasman Bridge

You must have heard a lot about the Derwent River. Then, it's impossible not to know about the Tasman Bridge that spans the river in a bold arch. There are numerous piers here, and the stories about this bridge tell that one pier was rammed by a cargo vessel in 1964 threatening to make the bridge collapse. What you can see today is a replacement bridge opened after that incident (in 1977) and strolling across this bridge rewards you nothing less than the most beautiful views of all.
