About Tasmania

Tasmania, Australia is an island of dramatic beauty, modern sophisticated cities, friendly innovative people and a fascinating preserved history.

Located at Australia’s southernmost tip, just a 50 minutes’ flight from the major International airport at Melbourne, you’ll find an unspoilt yet accessible wilderness, colonial heritage, and succulent fresh produce and award-winning wines.


It’s no wonder Lonely Planet has called Hobart one of the top ten spots to visit in the world right now.

Hobart is Tasmania’s capital city and the second oldest capital in Australia, after Sydney. Located at the entrance to the Derwent River, its well-preserved surrounding bushland reaches close to the city centre and beaches line the shores of the river and estuary beyond. With its captivating history, picturesque waterways, rugged mountains and gourmet experiences, the city has something for everyone.

Award-winning restaurants offer fine dining experiences using the best Tasmanian produce recognised by the world’s best chefs, while on the waterfront punts and fishmongers sell the freshest seafood straight from the Southern Ocean.

Getting Around Hobart
Public transport facilities in Hobart are easily accessible with frequent bus services. Taxis abound and are reasonably priced. A free busy bee service operates throughout the city. For further information on bus timetables visit the Metro Tasmania on
