Hobart is the largest city in Tasmania. While it's not a huge city, the small town vibe offers an intimate view to a visitor, who's not familiar with the place (such as the case when I came there in 2008). In addition, there are plenty of interesting restaurants nearby, whether you want seafood, Japanese, Indian, and so forth.

Hobart and Tasmania, in general, was one of the best places that we ever visited. We're the kind of travellers that like to mix urban adventures with wild adventures with a side of delicious food. Tasmania delivers on all accounts. There is so much to do within 90 minutes drive of Hobart that you can easily get out and see amazing scenery and landscapes during the day and get an amazing meal in the evening.
A couple of tips from our trip:
- Rent/hire a car. Hobart is small and there is so much to do within a 90 minute drive that you don't want to limit yourself to public transportation. You'll be happy you did.
- Splurge and go on one of the half-day or day-long cruises. It's worth it. Trust me.
- Go to the Museum of Old and New Art. Set aside a day for it. You will not be sorry you did. I'm not a huge fan of museums in general, but loved the experience of the MONA. My favorite museum of all time.
- Set aside two days for hiking/bush walking. One day plan to explore the eastern side of the island with its numerous farms and endless bays, on the second day head west into the temperate rainforest. You'll get two very different experiences that are both worth having.
- Plan ahead. The towns outside of Hobart are small and sometimes it can be difficult to find restaurants in which to eat. I'm all for discovery but would've loved to know that outside of Hobart finding restaurants can sometimes be hard to find.

Very clean, good restaurants. Was a stop while sailing on the Diamond Princess from Sydney to Auckland. Have a friend in Hobart who took us on a tour out into the countryside and to the botanical gardens. Beautiful place and would like to return to spend more time on the island.

One of Australia's BEST cities - small almost boutique capital, a '10 minute' city, where everything is just a stone's throw away either on foot, or by cab. With the imposing Mt Wellington thrust up immediately behind it, it is different in one more respect compared with the mainland. 20 mins away are the best views in Oz, and almost totally a complete range of walks, hard-core BMX trails and descents. With its accessible harbourside and the famous Salamanca Market area allowing shopping, dining, strolling and looking Hobart has emerged to be chique and cosmopolitan in every way.
