The 5 Best Things to Do in Hobart

Top Travel Experiences for your group or family near your Hobart Accommodation



(Museum of Old and New Art)

18 mins drive (15km)

No trip to Hobart is complete without a trip to MONA. From the weird to the wacky to the wonderful, it really is a must see during your stay. MONA is available to access via car or public transport. We recommend the MONA ferry which provides direct transfers from the Hobart waterfront several times a day.

2. Salamanca Market (every Saturday)

12 mins drive (8km)

Another famous Tassie icon is the Salamanca Markets. A Saturday regular that attracts thousands of locals and tourists, making it one of the largest outdoor markets in Australia. Over 300 stallholders line the streets of Hobart’s waterfront to sell their locally crafted products from homewares and organic fruit and veg, to unique clothes, jewellery, wine, artwork, artisan cheeses and more! Local buskers and the smell of fresh food creates an atmosphere not to be missed.

Kunanyi/Mount Wellington is the mountain which towers over the city of Hobart, providing the most incredible panoramic views of southern Tasmania. Summer or winter, it is always pretty chilly up the top – so make sure you take a jumper!
