Whether you’re visiting Tasmania for Dark MOFO (on at the time of publish) or simply to see what life’s like at the end of the world, there’s a lot to do on this tiny Australian island. Hobart, the capital, has a rich history despite a sometimes forgotten past and an inaccurate perception that the destination was sweet but dull. Thanks to an ever-changing whisky industry, natural wines, a blossoming food scene and the opening of MONA in 2011, Hobart has become a must-visit city when traveling to Australia. With incredibly fresh produce and seafood, compelling art and superb restaurants, it’s a wonder this place was ever off the map in the first place.
We’ve selected just some of our favorite spots in the quaint but buzzing city—from accommodation to wineries, a pub where you’ll feel like a local and more in our Hobart City Guide. Stay tuned for updates.
