Mount Wellington

A visit to Mount Wellington is a must for those interested in nature and wilderness. The mountain truly shows how diverse Tasmania can be and the summit of Kunanyi/ Mount Wellington offers spectacular landscapes of the greater Hobart Region, Bruny Island and down towards the South West Wilderness area.

The best time to venture up the mountain is during sunrise or sunset, where you will be able to catch beautiful images of the surrounding scenery.

Cascade Brewery

First opened in 1832, the Cascade Brewery is Australia's oldest operating brewery, beautifully placed at the foot of the majestic Mount Wellington.

You can take a tour, where you will be offered tasting sessions and gain knowledge of what goes into the brewing of their tasty beverages, or just relax and enjoy Cascade beers at your own leisure.

Salamanca Market

If you love a proper old-fashioned outdoor market, and a true feel for Tasmanian culture, then the Salamanca Market is the perfect place for you to go and visit during your time in Hobart.

Every Saturday, over 300 different stalls come out offering a variety of beautiful trinkets or wonderful fresh food.

The market is so unique and memorable that it is the most visited tourist attraction in the whole of Tasmania and has won many awards for its brilliance!

Tasmanian Cricket Museum

Possibly one of the best opportunities for the big cricket fans out there – the Tasmanian Cricket Museum.

Just a few metres away from the Blundstone Arena, the museum offers up a great insight into the history of Australian cricket, with displays dedicated to the achievements of former Australian captain Ricky Ponting and the all-rounder Charles Eady, who once scored a whole 566 runs in a single innings.
