Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania, Australia’s island state, and has a population of just over 200 thousand. The city is the financial and administrative centre for Tasmania, and Australia’s second oldest capital after Sydney. Set south-east of the Derwent River estuary, the city has the unique Australian backdrop of the imposing 4000 ft Mount Wellington.

Surrounded by well-preserved bushland, rugged mountains and gaping waterways, Hobart is a city known for its natural beauty. Hobart’s rich maritime history dates back to 1804 when it was founded as one of the first penal colonies. Now it has become a cosmopolitan capital, with a string of festivals and superior food and drink to boast of.

The relatively low population, compared with other Australian capitals, gives Hobart a slow and steady pace. The cool, oceanic climate is considered a commodity, with Mount Wellington often receiving a blanket snow-cap in winter.

The massive weekly market in Salamanca Place is widely considered Australia’s best outdoor market, with food, wine and craft stalls showcasing the best in Tasmanian produce.
