Hobart and South

Hobart, Tasmania's capital city, sits on the River Derwent in Tasmania's south and is within a 90-minute drive of some of Tasmania's most visited attractions, making it the perfect base for exploring southern Tasmania.

Explore the converted colonial warehouses of Salamanca and on Saturday's there's Salamanca Market, Tasmania's most visited attraction. A short walk away is the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery or a short ferry ride takes you to Mona, one of the world's largest private collections of old and new art.

Travelling south of Hobart you'll find the clear waters and stunning coastline of Bruny Island, the rich soils of the Huon valley, the picturesque beauty of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and the rugged Hartz Mountains National Park.

East of Hobart are the wineries of the Coal River Valley and Tasman National Park with its spectacular coastline, geological formations and historic convict sites.

To the west is the Derwent Valley, where the road follows the beautiful River Derwent through rows of poplars and on to Tasmania's central highlands and the grandeur of Lake St Clair and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

North from Hobart, the Midland Highway heads to Launceston. Dubbed the Heritage Highway, it offers many opportunities to enjoy Tasmania's heritage past, with homesteads and country cottages reflecting the state's early colonial history.
