Attractions around Hobart
Rising 1270 metres above the city at its base, the tallest peak in the Wellington Range (original name: Kunanyi) is frequently topped by snow, even into the summer.
An enclosed lookout near the summit affords a dramatic 360-degree view of nearly 100 miles over the city and the Derwent River estuary, as it enters the Tasman Sea. An extensive network of walking tracks within this urban natural reserve allows for a variety of outdoor pursuits.
Campervan access: Mount Wellington is easily reached by Pinnacle Road, a 22-km winding drive from the CBD. There are several parking areas within the park.
One of Hobart’s newer and more controversial attractions, the Museum of Old and New Art opened in 2011 on a peninsula 12 km north of the CBD and many visitors arrive by ferry on the Derwent River.
Appearing at first as a single level structure, the $75 million museum extends two windowless stories underground by way of a spiral staircase and houses 400 artistic works from the private collection of local millionaire David Walsh. Art is arranged in a seemingly random fashion, rather than in a thematic scheme, and on site there are both a winery and a brewery.
Campervan access: MONA has its own somewhat limited parking and there are additional nearby car parks, as well as parking by the ferry dock.
Hobart’s oldest suburb was originally built in 1818 for a role in coastal defence and named for its battery of guns, which were only ever used for ceremonial salutes. Decommissioned in 1878, Battery Point today is home to a popular walking route amongst 1830’s convict-built architecture, some of which dates to the first European settlement of ‘Hobart Town’.
Of note are the 1836 neoclassical St George’s Anglican Church by two local architects and Arthur Circus, a collection of cottages constructed for officers of the garrison and the only circus in Australia.
Campervan access: Battery Point is a 15-minute walk south from the CBD and has widely available street parking.
Once the hub of Hobart’s colonial whaling days, today’s cobblestone-lined Salamanca Place has been repurposed into a popular collection of art galleries, theatres, pubs, eateries, and shops.
Built between 1835 and 1860 and revived in the 1970’s, quaint Georgian three- and four- storey sandstone buildings, which originally stored grain, wool, apples, and imported goods, line the historic waterfront along Sullivan’s Cove, just moments from the CBD.
On Saturdays, a city council operated market provides opportunities to purchase handcrafted products from more than 300 stalls.
Campervan access: Salamanca Place is a five min walk from CBD and accessible by from Battery Point by Kelly’s Steps. Street Parking is also available close to the market.
