Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Hobart
Celebrate both the past and present in the Tasmanian capital.
From weekend getaways to longer stays, Hobart has accommodation to suit it all
Can you hear that? It's the buzz coming from Hobart. There are pursuits to suit every style in the Tasmanian capital, from heritage sites for history-lovers, rugged mountains for hiking enthusiasts and waterfronts for loved-up couples to stroll along. Don't fret foodies, there is something for you too, including a gourmet scene that is quickly gaining ground on the credentials once only boasted by Melbourne and Sydney. Throw in the world-famous galleries, excellent nightlife and proximity to other Tasmanian delights, and it's an unbeatable combination.
Hobart is a beautiful harbour city, with a compact centre of old sandstone buildings and contemporary architecture that will have you itching to explore on foot. Salamanca Place, a short walk from the harbour, is the heart of the action. This historic arts and food precinct is packed with award-winning restaurants, cosy wine bars and trendy cafes. Visit on a Saturday morning for the vibrant Salamanca Market, where more than 300 stallholders sell arts, crafts, food and fresh local produce. Buskers singing the blues and musicians strumming folk songs make for the perfect morning soundtrack.
Of course, no Hobart trip is complete without a visit to MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art. Set within the Moorilla winery on the Berriedale Peninsula, catch the fast ferry from Brooke Street Pier in the city to spend an afternoon viewing this quirky mix of art and antiquities from businessman David Walsh’s private collection. There is an on-site restaurant, Source, for when your arty pursuits give you an appetite.
Hobart puts its visitors in a prime position for seeing some of Southern Tasmania too. To the south is Bruny Island, a food- and nature-lover's heaven. Jump on the ferry to the north island from the terminal near Kettering. In the opposite direction towards the East Coast, visitors can drive for less than 90 minutes and arrive at Port Arthur, one of Tasmania's most important historic sites.
No matter if you're in town for a weekend getaway, a romantic escape or are planning on seeing all you can of the Apple Isle, Hobart has accommodation that guarantees you sleep in style. From heritage B&Bs, sleek art hotels, waterfront apartments and beautiful holiday homes, you'll find something for you in our collection of boutique Hobart accommodation.
