Traveling to Australia for a holiday is always a good idea. However, if you want a more unique experience than visiting major Australian cities, visit Hobart. This area is home to many activities and attractions that relate to the arts, nature and more. The best activities and attractions in Hobart have been briefly covered below.
Climbing Mt. Willington on your own can be a lifetime experience, but it can also be strenuous and take too long. If you would like to see the best of Mt. Wellington in one day or less, look into Mt. Wellington Walks. They offer bush-walking tours led by guides. They also offer hotel pickup, which adds to the simplicity of this adventure. You can choose between a half-day or full-day tour. You can also choose between easy and adventurous. Either way, you’re going to have an opportunity to enjoy what many people call the freshest air in the world, as well as beautiful scenery from windy peaks. Other neat features include a waterfall, unique flora and fauna and Tasmanian food. Many people also appreciate the forest itself for its peaceful aura – it’s very quiet.
Another great option if you like the outdoors is the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. This might not be as adventurous, but it’s just as beautiful. The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens consists of 34 acres of flower collections, expansive lawns, a sub-Antarctic plant house, the oldest operational carousel in the world and trees that have been around for hundreds of years. You can see all this via a guided tour if you please. Whether you choose to go it alone or with a tour guide, the Organic Garden Talk is recommended.
If you love culture, you must visit Salamanca Market. It’s only open on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. so plan accordingly. It’s open rain or shine so the weather isn’t an issue. Salamanca Market has over 300 vendors offering everything from vegetables to deli food to live music. This isn’t just a great place to shop and hang out; it’s also a great place to get to know the locals.
If you enjoy the arts, visit the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. This museum and art gallery has been around since 1843. It offers Tasmanian arts from different time periods, the Markree House Museum, a museum shop, a courtyard café and unique architecture. You also have the option of booking a tour.
Now you know more about Hobart. If you visit all of the attractions above, you will have a well-rounded and adventurous holiday.
