Welcome to Tasmania's capital

Hobart is the capital of Tasmania and doesn't disappoint with its excellent restaurants, fascinating attractions, botanical gardens, verdant vineyards and opportunities for outdoor activities, most of which focus around the ocean, coast and the nearby mountains. Over recent years, the city has transformed itself from a quiet waterfront destination to a vibrant town with a thriving artist community. There's a wealth of Hobart vacation rentals to choose from in the heart of the city, but book them early if you want to visit the Taste Tasmania Festival or watch the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

There's always something to do in Tassie

You won't be short on things to do in Southern Tassie. Just a short distance from your Hobart vacation rental lies the mighty Mount Wellington whose scenery encompasses lush temperate rainforest and whose summit enjoys spectacular views down over the sea. It's a hotspot for mountain bikers who get their kicks riding down the challenging rocky trails, while those on foot can walk along the wooden boardwalks to the edge of a precipice. There are many more adventures to be had from sailing in the open seas to diving below the surface to discover the underwater world of colorful marine life.

Wander the colorful Salamanca Market

While it may be tempting to spend your days soaking up the sunshine on the sandy beaches, the city is brimming with attractions to uncover. If you happen to be staying in a Hobart vacation rental on a weekend, be sure to visit the famous Saturday Salamanca Market whose vendors sell everything from artisan food to colorful crafts. Alternatively, the beautiful Royal Tasmanian Botanical Garden is well worth an afternoon stroll. To learn about the island's rich ocean-faring history, spend a morning at the Maritime Museum of Tasmania housed in the old Carnegie Building.

Famously changeable weather

If you want the weather to change in Tasmania, just hold on 10 minutes. Its maritime climate makes Hobart's weather famously fickle and distinctly different from the rest of Australia. The high season is the summer months between December and February and if you plan to visit during this time, be sure to book your Hobart vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. But don't let this stop you going the rest of the year. While the winter may not receive such glorious weather, you can wrap up warm and settle into a tasty meal or visit the museums.

Cuddly koalas and mobs of kangaroos

Just a 30-minute drive from most Hobart vacation rentals, lies the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, a rescue center which works tirelessly to protect endangered species and provides safety to thousands of creatures every year. Without doubt, the most popular residents are the Tasmanian devils, cuddly koalas and the wombats, but you'll also spot dozens of roaming mobs kangaroos and wallabies which the kids will love feeding. Try to arrive in time for one of the tours of the Sanctuary which help you understand Tasmania's fauna with expert guides.
