Hobart and South

Hobart, Tasmania's capital city, offers a blend of heritage and lifestyle with world class activities and attractions nearby.

In Hobart, explore the converted colonial warehouses of Salamanca and on Saturdays there's Salamanca Market, Tasmania's most visited attraction.

From here it's a short walk to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery or a short ferry ride takes you to Mona, one of the world's largest private collections of art and antiquities.

South of Hobart are the clear waters and stunning coastline of Bruny Island and the beauty of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. An alternative route passes through the Huon Valley alongside the tranquil Huon River and on to the rugged Hartz Mountains National Park.

To the east are the wineries of the Coal River Valley and further on is Tasman National Park, with its spectacular coastline and historic convict sites.

Heading west, the road follows the beautiful River Derwent through the Derwent Valley and on to the grandeur of Lake St Clair in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

And if you're travelling north to Launceston, the Midland Highway, dubbed the Heritage Highway, offers many opportunities to learn of Tasmania's heritage past, with homesteads and country cottages revealing the state's early colonial history along the way.
