Hobart, Tasmania

Imagine an island of majestic mountains, lush rainforests, wild rivers, rolling hills, and white sandy beaches. Add to that some of Australia's oldest cities and a population of around 500,000, and you have Tasmania. Hobart is the capital and largest city in Tasmania, offering all necessary services, yet it is free from overcrowding, traffic congestion, serious pollution, and major crime. Situated close to the mouth of the Derwent River and nestled in the foothills of Mount Wellington, it seems that from nearly every point in the city there is a magnificent view.

Hobart culture mixes the soul of the sea with youthful and modern city life, enriched with colonial heritage. Although the city and harbor are busy, the dramatic landscape and easy going atmosphere keeps this city lively yet laid back. If you are interested in a unique experience in which you can easily immerse yourself in the culture and make friends with the locals, you can't go wrong with making Hobart your temporary home.
