The island of Tasmania just south of the Australian mainland is a fascinating place with a lot to discover. The cultural and population hub of the island, the capital of Hobart, is a great place to base your Tasmania travels and a city with a lot to offer itself. Check out these three spots you can’t miss in Tasmania’s biggest city!
Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
The cool climate of Hobart allows for plans from the cooler regions of the world to be featured at this beautiful 35-acre site. Established over 200 years ago, you’ll love the relaxing walking paths through the park and the exhibitions of Japanese, subarctic, and Tasmanian plants.
Just a short drive outside of the city of Hobart is Mount Wellington, a mountain that reaches over 4,000 feet high but can be climbed with accessible routes. From the top, you will have impeccable views of the city of Hobart, the Tasman Sea, and most of the island!
Opened just 10 years ago and the most famous part of the Moorilla Winery in Hobart, the Museum of Old and New Art is a paradise for art lovers who like subversive themes. It isn’t a visit for kids, but adults will be fascinated by the mix of modern and contemporary art.
