Hobart Guide

What are the top things to do and see in Hobart?

First-time visitors and seasoned travellers alike should make plans to visit the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). This incredible museum is actually a private collection and boasts an eclectic (and boundary-pushing) mix of ancient and modern pieces, displays and exhibits. MONA is also behind the city’s Dark FOMO festival, which is held every winter and is a major draw for local, interstate and international travellers. Book your accommodation and flights to Hobart well in advance if you are looking to attend Dark FOMO.

Head to the historic Hobart Harbour for a walk along the waterfront. Hobart Harbour is a great area where visitors can go to catch an early sunrise, munch on servings of fish and chips, or take in the views of Mount Wellington. The harbour is also home to a collection of shops, restaurants, cafes, and hotels.

Salamanca Place and Salamanca Square should be on the list of must-see things to do for almost every travelling on incoming Hobart flights. Salamanca Place was once a party hub for sailors, workmen and whalers during Hobart’s whaling heydey. Today, this vibrant area is brimming with theatres, cafes, art galleries and boutiques. If you’re planning a weekend in Hobart, be sure to check out the Salamanca Markets on Saturdays. Browse stalls from vendors selling handicrafts and delicious street foods, and watch buskers or live performers. Families can take a break from the Salamanca crowds at nearby Battery Point. This charming historic area has beautiful gardens, good cafes and a playground for little ones to expend extra energy.

No matter how long you’re in town, try to carve some time out of your schedule to climb Mount Wellington. The summit can be reached with the help of a hire car, with the assistance of a local hiking guide, or from the seat of a mountain bike. On a clear day, the views from the peak are incredible and stretch as far as Bruny Island, the Derwent River, and the Tasman Peninsula. 


What are the landmarks and monuments you can’t miss in Hobart?

Cascades Female Factory

Dive into the Apple Isle’s history after landing at Hobart Airport (HBA) by planning a visit to the Cascades Female Factory. Many of the original structures from the prison have been destroyed, however, tours of the site are still incredibly enlightening into Hobart’s convict legacy. Entry tickets to the site can be upgraded to include the ‘Mary’s Story’ experience, and this option gives particularly eager history-buffs an even deeper understanding of what life was like for the women who lived at the workhouse.


Another popular activity for history-lovers travelling on Hobart flights is perusing the maritime collection housed at Runnymede. This well-preserved 19th-century home was the former residence of a local whaling captain and now holds an incredible collection of artefacts and historical works.


Add a trip to the Cenotaph to your itinerary when holidaying on flights to Hobart. Located on a small hill, this site is dedicated to the memory of members of the Australian military who died during service. After paying respects to the fallen, you can continue to the peak of the hill for views of the Derwent River, the Tasman Bridge and Mount Wellington.

Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens

Relax after your flights to Hobart arrive and get away from it all at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. The area features a wide array of flowers and plants. Walk the grounds on your own or arrange a guided tour to gain insights from a knowledgeable volunteer guide.


What are the major events and festivals held in Hobart?

Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and the Taste of Tasmania

Hobart is an energetic city with festivals and events happening year-round. If your Hobart flights are due to arrive in early January, you’ll find the area around Constitution Dock alive with festivities. The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and the Taste of Tasmania take over Hobart Harbour during this week-long celebration. You can taste your way through offerings from market food vendors, curl up for an outdoor movie in the park, or sit back and watch the talented street performers.

Spiegeltent Celebration

Those booking Hobart flights with the intention of arriving in autumn can dance the night away during the Spiegeltent celebration. You’ll find a variety of musicians, dancers, cabaret performers and comedians in the three-week festival lineup.

Royal Hobart Regatta and Australian Wooden Boat Festival

Boat enthusiasts arriving in February can delight in the Royal Hobart Regatta as well as the Australian Wooden Boat Festival (AWBF). The regatta runs for three days at the beginning of February and completely takes over the River Derwent. Families can take advantage of the family-focused activities on the first Saturday of the regatta. No matter what day you attend, there will be plenty of water sports to watch and activities to keep you entertained. The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is held during the regatta’s run. The AWBF celebrates Australia’s maritime heritage and is one of the world’s largest wooden boat festivals. Using Webjet to book flights to Hobart can save you money no matter if you’re hoping to travel to the Apple Isle to taste the fine foods and drinks, see the incredible views from the harbour, or partake in the lively festivals throughout the year.
