Explore the stunning wilderness, burgeoning food scene and luxury accommodation of Hobart and Surrounds
Cradled between majestic Mount Wellington and a bustling harbour, Tasmania’s capital melds heritage charm with contemporary luxury. A popular destination for food, wine and art lovers, Hobart offers a range of boutique accommodation options in the city centre and beyond.
For a romantic couples’ retreat in Hobart, choose a hideaway near the city; check in to a designer hotel on the esplanade; or embrace the region’s heritage with a stay in a historic home or B&B, all within easy reach of the Hobart waterfront.
Hobart’s convict-built wharves and warehouses have been beautifully restored to create a vibrant waterside precinct. The highlight for many visitors is the arts and food hub around Salamanca Place and Battery Point, lined with cafes, markets, galleries and restaurants serving the region’s freshest seafood.
If you’d like to explore further afield, cross the Derwent River for a relaxed weekend getaway in the town of Bellerive, home to chic coastal bungalows and stylish apartments.
Beyond the city, it’s just a short hop to the wilds of Southern Tasmania, carved up by walking trails, forests and dramatic seascapes. Rolling farmlands and a windswept coastline peppered with creative communities, fishing villages and pretty towns are the heart and soul of this region.
South of the capital, the Huon Trail offers beautiful panoramas of the coast and World Heritage-listed mountains. The boutique accommodation in the Huon Valley makes the most of this idyllic setting, offering everything from quaint B&Bs in Woodstock to cutting-edge beach houses near Port Cygnet.
Fast becoming the gourmet capital of Tasmania, Bruny Island to the south of Hobart is home to sublime seafood, cheese, wine and craft breweries. For a Tasmanian weekend getaway of fine food and wine, book an eco-friendly cabin, luxury lodge or spa cottage on Bruny Island.
North of Hobart, the charming villages of Buckland and New Norfolk promise romantic country escapes in restored manor houses and elegant estates.
