Hobart

Hobart is a city characterised by nineteenth century sandstone warehouses, bright sails on the water, and fishing boats bobbing in the docks. Just below this historic facade is a vibrant and connected underbelly of producers, artisans and artists. To find them wake early for a farmers market, dine in local eateries or descend into the mind of David Walsh via a spiral staircase at Mona, Museum of Old and New Art. Wherever you go, you’ll feel it in the streets, taste it in the produce and see it in the galleries and on the faces of the people you meet.

Tasmania’s southern urban pulse meets wilderness with dramatic results. Risk-taking artists, passionate producers, inventive chefs and soulful heritage bring light and shade to the capital city Hobart. Venture from the hum of Hobart and see world heritage sites, rainforests, islands and mighty rivers. Southerly offerings will keep you coming back for more.

Bruny Island
Wild seascapes, towering dolerite seacliffs and sweeping surf beaches, wonderful coastal walks, birdlife and wildflowers, tall forests and an historic lighthouse are all features of Bruny Island off the southeast corner of Tasmania. It is about the size of Singapore but has a population of around 500 people. Access is a 20-minute crossing by vehicular ferry from Kettering, 35 minutes' drive south of Hobart. It appears to be two separate islands but it is joined by the Neck (the isthmus connecting North and South Bruny Island). Adventure Bay, South Bruny, is where Capt William Bligh came ashore for water and provisions before heading off for his ill-fated mutiny in the South Pacific. Walks include the coastal track to Penguin Island and Fluted Cape, from Adventure Bay; beach walks on Cloudy Bay; or the full-day circuit of the Labillardiere Peninsula. A narrow gravel road links Lunawanna and Adventure Bay, giving wide, stunning south-westerly views. As you walk look out for Bennetts wallabies, pademelons, echidna and wombats. From November to April each year the short-tailed shearwaters arrive to mate and breed along the shore before heading out on their heroic journey to the northern hemisphere. The lighthouse at Cape Bruny was built between 1836 and 1838 with convict labour. The Bruny Island Ferry Service runs seven days a week.
