Hobart is the capital and largest city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. Founded in 1803, Hobart is Australia’s second oldest capital city after Sydney, New South Wales. Hobart is the most southern of Australia’s capital cities, located at the mouth of the Derwent River. The city harbour forms the second-deepest natural port in the world.

Hobart is truly a beautiful city full of rich history and unique features. One of Hobart’s more popular recreation areas, just a short distance from the city centre, is the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. It is the second-oldest Botanical Gardens in Australia and displays a beautiful collection of plants. Another popular attraction is Mount Wellington, the dominant feature of Hobart’s skyline. At 1,271 meters, the mountain has its own ecosystems, is rich in biodiversity and plays a large part in determining the local weather. And of course, the view of the city from the top is amazing! The Tasman Bridge is also an ionic feature of the city, connecting the two shores of Hobart and is visible from many locations.
