Tucked neatly against the foot of Mount Wellington, Tasmania’s capital city is one of those rare places where you can truely escape from the world. Not that Hobart (or, indeed, Tassie) is a backwater. Far from it. This quiet, sedate and classy town is a haven for artists, foodies and lovers of light. Hobart is redolent with colonial history, and its accommodation options are often bit players in the saga. Sitting discreetly in the crinkles and folds along the edges of the winding Derwent River, and in the leafy streets downtown, almost all of Hobart’s boutique hotels have a story to tell.
Hobart is a walker’s town. With time on your hands, you and your loved one can stroll for hours: window-shopping along the neatly-cobbled, deeply-verandahed thoroughfares downtown, or sprawling in the shady parks of Salamanca. Tasmania is Australia’s fresh food larder, and cheeses, clotted cream, craft beer and seafood feature front and centre on the island’s menus. Hobart’s residents love their outdoor eating, and in joints like Preachers, and The Whaler, you can sip and nibble the afternoons away. And as the lights go down on another perfect Hobart day, the shadowed hills and shining river promise more adventures to come.
