Things To Do In Hobart

Tasmania produces some of the world’s best chocolate and beer, and they love showing tourists how it’s done. The Cascade Brewery is one of Australia’s oldest, and most popular breweries. Take a guided tour to learn how beer is brewed and see historic beer memorabilia in the Cascade Museum. The 90-minute walking tour will leave you thirsty, so the tour is capped off with a tasting session.

There’s also plenty to taste at the Cadbury Factory, home of the world’s favorite chocolate. The factory tours allow you to see how Cadbury’s most popular chocolates are made, and taste them too!

The Visitor’s Center details the factory’s history and the products that have established Cadbury as one of the world’s most beloved brands.

Salamanca Place, located on the harbor’s edge, is one of Hobart’s great meeting places. Its sandstone warehouses were built in the 1800s, and were the center of the city’s trade industry. Today these beautiful buildings house art galleries, restaurants, nightspots and shops. Visit The Place on Saturday mornings to see the famous open-air markets.

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, consider visiting Mount Wellington. The imposing mount is a 20-minute drive from Hobart and towers more than 1000 meters over it. Take a warm coat and set off on one of the many walking trails. The mount’s summit offers magnificent views of Hobart, the Derwent Valley and the Tasman Peninsula.
