It’s also one of the coolest – both in terms of climate and character. The temperate oceanic climate makes it comfortable all year round, while the range of museums, galleries, restaurants and festivals ensures a great atmosphere whenever you visit.
Probably the most relaxed state capital, Hobart prides itself on a tranquil way of life. You can enjoy excellent views of the often snow-capped Mount Wellington, take a visit to the Cadbury’s Chocolate Factory or even try your luck in Wrest Point Casino, Australia’s first casino.
