Hobart: Things To Do

Updated: October 2021


Hobart is a small city at the bottom of the world, and that's exactly why people like to visit. You will find it a relaxing place to visit - nobody is rushing anywhere - yet it has many things you would expect of a state capital visit. An excellent state museum, world class art museum, plenty of tours, great food and a solid list of things to do.

MONA is an absolute highlight. It's wild choices of art to display and the incredible underground building it's housed in make it one of the most exciting art museums to visit in the world.

The small size of the city and it's location in pristine Tasmania make it an easy place from which to get out into nature. You can explore forests, go rock climbing, kayak on the calm waters of the Derwent, or take a trip to close by island.

Three days would be enough to do the highlights (maybe even just two if MONA is not of interest) but the more time you spend here the more you will find it a relaxing place to fall in love with. Explore the list below to find out what to do in Hobart.

For flights with Qantas, try looking at which is operated by Flight Centre. It's an easy to use flight search website that gives you the true price (unlike others, that show dodgy prices) and back-up support from your local Flight Centre store.

"These links are recommended because I use them myself. They are easy to use sites, offer excellent service, and are sites that I would suggest to my friends and family if they asked."
