Hobart Business Directory

A Guide to Hobart

Sitting in the shadow of Mount Wellington, on the estuary of the River Derwent, Hobart is the capital of the island state of Tasmania. Established as a penal colony and as the second oldest state capital in Australia, Hobart is full of heritage and culture. It's also a gorgeous city in a stunning landscape, with a pleasant climate, where the living is easy.

Small by city standards, it's easily navigable, and with being the major transport hub of the island, all the attractions of Tasmania are within 3 or 4 hours.

Hobart can easily bear the description of boutique - cosmopolitan, lovely Georgian and Federation architecture, a trendy waterfront, an exciting restaurant and produce market scene, and great shopping, all fit the mantle.

Much of the cultural interest in Hobart relates to its founding back in the early 1800s, but it also once had a strong whaling tradition and evidence of this trade is still around the city.

Getting to Hobart

The city has an international airport which is served by the major Australian airports. Ferry crossings over the Tasman Sea depart from Melbourne and arrive at Devonport, 277 kilometres away from Hobart.

Interesting to know

As well as a busy stop for cruise ships, the port of Hobart is the hub for Antarctica, used extensively by Australia and France.
