Holiday In Hobart

Eat, booze, and eat some more. If those six words got your attention, you’ll be in good company in Hobart, Tasmania.
A holiday in Hobart has wineries, distilleries and breweries—and if you want more than adult beverages, there are organic cuisines, historic theatres and newsfeed-worthy waterfront snaps. Discover Australia’s “mini-Sydney” on your next getaway, and you’ll fall in love for life.

Things to Do in Hobart

Soak up the good vibes and old-school architecture at Salamanca Place, a waterfront, cobblestone square practically made for photo ops. Catch an outdoor concert at the Arts Centre, watch local artists in their workshops and tour the Georgian colonial-style Parliament House. Pro tip: Book a Hobart holiday in January to see the “Paca Picnic”, a yearly gathering of adorable alpacas on the Parliament House lawns. (Best profile pic evar!) Aside from getting educated and cuddling alpacas, this square has another benefit: You’re within a kilometre of the city’s award-winning distilleries and wine bars.

Mount Wellington, a popular spot for bushwalking, mountain biking, rock climbing and more, is sure to “tower” over your trip. Steer your way 20 km west in one of lastminute.com.au’s Hobart car hire deals and saddle up the bike. If you’ve got a need for speed, point toward Old Farm Track, a downhill-only trail dedicated solely to mountain bikes. No wheels? Use your own two feet on the Milles Track to hike to spectacular views of Wellington Falls.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

You’ve got plenty of dollarydoos taking up space in your bank account thanks to our cheap Hobart packages, so it’s time to splurge! Grab an organic apple and browse one-of-a-kind souvenirs like paintings of the cityscape or hand-blown glass ornaments at the Salamanca Saturday Market. Any other day of the week, get your shop on at pedestrian-only Elizabeth Street: Wise spenders will look for Tasmanian wool and local cool-climate wines like pinot noir.

Tasmania is known as “Apple Isle”, but Hobart holidays offer so much more. The wild (and uber-clean) coastline means you can treat your taste buds to freshly-shucked abalone and flavourful salmon, while industries like olive oil, cheese and organic, grass-fed beef thrive in the temperate climate. Visit the piers in Hobart for seafood with a view, or experience the modern Australian dining phenomenon in a cosy cafe in Battery Point.

If you’ve memorised more than one Shakespeare monologue and live for the release of the next Broadway hit, you’re definitely in the right place. Catch a show at Theatre Royal, Australia’s oldest continually running playhouse. It’s hosted some of the world’s favourite authors and actors—not to mention a ghost. Aside from slamming doors and causing chills, Fred the Ghost reportedly saved the theatre from a fire in 1984. Good ghost (for un-haunted nightlife, just head back to Salamanca Place)!

What’s Next?

From mountaintop fun to shopping and day drinking, no one does holidays quite like the Tassies—and no one can save you cash quite like lastminute.com.au. Check out our cheap Hobart package deals and get going!
