Without further ado, here is my highlight of top things to do while in Hobart for the first time.
Top Things to Do or See
MONA – It is a must-visit place of the city. Basically it is an art gallery with interesting and inspiring art pieces on showcase.
– Don’t get surprised if you heard of exclusive Salamanca market tours.
It is one of the best street markets of the country where you will find
vendors selling wares and mouth-watering food.
– Sitting at Salamanca Place and Salamanca square, visiting the
historic Georgian sandstone warehouses, and indulging into great food
and drinks are some must-dos.
Historic battery point
– In close proximity to Salamanca, it is one of the most prominent
suburbs of the city and is home to a number of historical homes. Go
walking and visiting these prestigious houses with beautiful rose
Historic Harbour – Well, this is the
place where the popular Sydney-Hobart yacht race ends in early January
every year. Early morning is the perfect time to visit this magnificent
harbour in its best attire with clear sky and the soothing serenity.

range of beers and ciders served in a picturesque rooftop setting. You
may mingle with the locals and other travellers too.

harbour and the Derwent River. You can enjoy bushwalking, picnicking and
barbecuing in open-air.
