What to do in Hobart over the weekend?
If you’ve booked flights Queenstown to Hobart for a 3-day weekend, here’s an idea of the things you can do.
If you’ve bought Queenstown to Hobart flights, there is no better way to start your trip than the famous Salamanca Markets. Open since 1972, Hobart’s main market has more than 300 stalls and vendors to choose from. It’s also got several food trucks so you don’t need to worry about finding a nearby cafe or restaurant. Once you’ve finished sampling the local cuisine and perusing the various stalls, you can stroll on down to the city’s scenic waterfront area to take in more of the fantastic scenery.
Cascade Brewery is Australia’s oldest operating brewery and makes for a great afternoon out when you book Queenstown to Hobart flights. The old brewery building itself is worth seeing, but beyond that, the brewery still makes top ales and does daily tours and tastings. You’re unlikely to be able to try many of these ales outside of Tasmania so it’s something that’s definitely worth adding to your itinerary once you’ve secured Queenstown to Hobart tickets.
MONA – The Museum of Old and New Art
For your second day in Hobart, consider visiting one of the city’s most popular ttractions: The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). The renowned museum was founded by Tasmanian entrepreneur David Walsh and is full of intriguing, bewildering and exciting exhibits, installations and artefacts that will confound your expectations of what a museum can be. If you’ve snapped up some cheap flights from Queenstown to Hobart with the kids, there’s plenty for them to see and explore as well (just know that some galleries may not be appropriate for young children). To get to the museum, you can catch the ferry from the main Hobart waterfront.
Once you’ve been dazzled by MONA, think about grabbing a table at The Source. This diner is located at the top of the museum and serves some of the best contemporary French food in all of Hobart. If you’re lucky, you may also be able to reserve a table with water views.
Mount Wellington is another popular tourist attraction in Hobart. You can drive, take a tour, or walk to the top. If you’re visiting during winter, be sure to wrap up with some warm layers. For those who have managed to grab Queenstown to Hobart return flights during summer, make sure you wear sunscreen. The views from the top are among the best you’re likely to see in all of Tasmania, so don’t forget to take a few pics while you’re up there!
Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
Thanks to Hobart’s infrequent rain, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are a fantastic place to visit throughout the year. If you’re looking for a quiet dinner spot, consider booking at restaurant Succulent. But if you’re simply looking to enjoy Australia's cool climate garden, you won’t be disappointed. There is also a Japanese Garden and duck pond.
What are Hobart’s top landmarks?
The Hobart Cenotaph is a huge monument dedicated to the Tasmanians who served in wars and peacekeeping missions since 1914. It sits on the Queens Domain, which provides fantastic views of the city and River Derwent. It’s the centre of ANZAC Day commemoration services and is a popular spot with locals and visitors with Queenstown to Hobart flights throughout the year.
Hobart’s Parliament House is possibly the city’s most famous building. Originally a customs house, it became the state’s parliament in 1841 when Tasmania gained its own government. You can find the famous house on Salamanca Place in the centre of the city.
Bernacchi Tribute Sculptures
The Bernacchi Tribute Sculptures commemorate the Tasmanian Antarctic explorer Louis Bernacchi, who famously captured images of the area and wrote several valuable scientific pieces. The sculpture is of Bernacchi posing with his dog in front of an old-style camera. You can find it by Franklin Wharf, around 5 minutes from Brooke Street Pier.
If you plan to rent a car from Hobart Airport (HBA) when you book Queenstown to Hobart return flights, you’ll be able to drive over the iconic Tasman Bridge. This impressive structure is Tasmania’s gateway to the city and sits approximately 60 metres above the Derwent River. You can also walk across the five-lane road bridge for even more impressive views. From Hobart CBD, it should take you around 1 hour to get to the other side of the Tasman Bridge on foot.
