Tasmania's capital is a picturesque, friendly and surprisingly cosmopolitan place, with excellent shopping streets and markets, some sublime gastronomic attractions and plenty of excursions to make if you exhaust everything the city has to offer.
For starter's this is a city with sex appeal. Its gorgeous location underneath Mount Wellington and gathered around a fine natural harbour is simply stunning. But what Tasmanians have done with the setting matches it. There's the Waterfront, with the excellent Tasmanian Museum, the boutiques and craft stalls at Salamanca Market, along with distilleries, seafront restaurants and kayaking tours. Then there's MONA - one of Australia's finest art galleries which was built into sandstone cliffs on the city's northern edge.
Plenty of craft brewers will be only too happy to pour a schooner or two of fine local products, while December sees the harbour packed with sails as the Sydney to Hobart race glides into port. And if you want to explore the island, feel free. The convict settlement of Port Arthur and the waterfalls of Mount Field National Park are easy to reach and well worth the trip.
This impeccable island is situated at the southern-most point in Australia, at the southern tip of the world, but with easy connectivity, you can fly from Singapore to Hobart (HBA) or Launceston (LST), with a stopover either in Sydney or Melbourne.
Whilst visiting the breathtaking views of Wineglass Bay, walking the cobbled streets of Hobart or Coal Valley's cool-climate wineries, the air you breathe in is among the freshest in the world. To top it up, the gastronomic choices in Tassie which include fresh produces such as oysters, atlantic salmon and local abalone will truly tantalise your tastebuds!
