Hobart

Area

Greater Hobart, including the cities of Clarence and Glenorchy as well as the town of Richmond, is an intriguing blend of heritage and lifestyle, scenery and vibrant culture. It’s a city defined by the river and sea. Take a harbour cruise, or drive to the summit of Mount Nelson or Mount Wellington, and you will understand our maritime focus – suburbs hug the Derwent River, city buildings cluster around the docks and the estuary broadens into Storm Bay and the distant sea.
Twenty-five kilometres and 100 years from the busy city is the historic town of Richmond – in the narrow cells of the old Richmond Gaol, Tasmania’s convict past seems just a clink of chains away. Close by are the neat vineyards and wineries of the Coal River Valley, home of superb cool-climate wines. The Greater Hobart area has beaches, wineries, breweries, world-class museums, mountains and waterfalls all within a small radius.
