Hobart & Freycinet Bay

Pocket-sized capital Hobart is packed with exquisitely preserved heritage buildings whilst the Freycinet Peninsula is the crown jewel of Tasmania’s wild east coast

With its humble origins as a penal colony, Hobart was once haunted by its past. These days however, the beautifully preserved Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian buildings instill a strong sense of local pride. Linked by ferry from Sullivan’s Cove, MONA’s (Museum of Old and New Art) confronting displays are guaranteed to incite a reaction.

Visitors flock to photogenic Battery Point and evocative Port Arthur, the island’s greatest attraction 90 minutes drive from Hobart. The second most popular site in Tasmania is luckily well within city limits. This section of coastline is home to some sensational scenic viewpoints, well worth a visit, including Ship Stern Bluff and the Remarkable Cave.

To the east, Freycinet Peninsula brims with white sand beaches, dramatic granite peaks and iridescent waters. One of the state’s most stunning natural wonders is hidden here – Wineglass Bay, whose flawless contours are flanked by the dusky pink Hazards Mountains. The region is also home to native wildlife including the iconic Tasmanian devil.

Hobart and Freycinet Peninsula can easily be incorporated into a tailor-made Australian holiday.
