WELCOME TO HOBART As Chief Executive of Destination Southern Tasmania, it gives me great pleasure to extend the warmest of welcomes to you from all of our members in Hobart and southern Tasmania. Hobart is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Nestled between kunanyi/Mount Wellington and the cool waters of the River Derwent you will find many of the unique and diverse tourist attractions and experiences that Tasmania is famous for. Discover everything from the convict history of the Cascades Female Factory and Hobart Convict Penitentiary to the modern art of MONA. The iconic waterfront area of Salamanca hosts the famous market each Saturday that bears its name, as well as some of the best food and drink experiences anywhere in the southern hemisphere. Once you have discovered the delights of Hobart we would encourage you to explore more of southern Tasmania from the Coal River Valley wine region to the food bowl of the Huon Valley and D’Entrecasteaux Channel. There are national parks and waterfalls galore throughout the Derwent Valley and rare and spectacular UNESCO world heritage attractions in Port Arthur. We welcome you to Hobart and southern Tasmania and have no doubt that your stay will be a memorable one.

SULLIVANS COVE

SOUTH HOBART

Located on the River Derwent and founded by Lieutenant Governor David Collins in 1804, Sullivans Cove was the birthplace of Hobart. Up until the late 1960s, it was a major freight port for Tasmania. Stretching from Hunter Street to Salamanca Place, this area has retained its historical value. Today, the area is a key location for some of Hobart’s major festivities.

BATTERY POINT Hobart’s oldest and most historic suburb, named after the battery of guns established on the point in 1818 as part of Hobart’s coastal defences. Houses in Battery Point were built in the 1830s - 40s to accommodate the growing settlement, ranging from small fisherman’s cottages to mansions of merchants and master mariners. Today, Battery Point is one of the city’s most prestigious suburbs.

SANDY BAY Located south of Hobart, stretching between Mt Nelson and the beaches along the River Derwent. Sandy Bay is a popular and diverse suburb with colonial sandstone buildings, large modern homes and student accommodation surrounding the University of Tasmania.

Nestled in the foothills of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington with views over the city, South Hobart was settled in the 1830s and was home to wealthy lawyers, doctors and magistrates who built large, gracious homes. Today, South Hobart is enjoyed for its coffee shops, gift stores and access to Wellington Park tracks.

HOBART CITY CENTRE Hobart is Australia’s second oldest capital city after Sydney in New South Wales. It is a small city with low-rise buildings connected by one-way streets and surrounded by plenty of green space. Hobart lies on the edge of the River Derwent with an ever changing backdrop of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington. Over 200,000 people live in the Greater Hobart area and over 500,000 in Tasmania.

QUEENS DOMAIN An area of 200 hectares of public recreational land, north of the CBD. The site was originally used for military and defence purposes. In the 1850s it was gazetted as a public reserve and given to the people of Tasmania by Queen Victoria. Today it features historical, cultural and natural attractions, sporting fields, walking tracks and picnic areas.

eneath the shadow of Mount Wellington, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Cascades Female Factory is the best place to connect with the lesser known stories of Australia’s female convicts. From 1828–1853 thousands of women and children were imprisoned here; many never left. Joining a guided tour brings the stories of this challenging but very special place to life. Our Heritage Tour runs each hour and reveals stories of the women and the punishment system to which they endured and railed against. Even more emotional is the dramatised tour Her Story. Site entry fees apply with all proceeds helping to fund the ongoing conservation of the site. Open 9.30am–4pm daily 1800 139 478 femalefactory.org.au @cascadesfemalefactory
