Luxury Hotels in Hobart

Hobart is a place of light. Sitting neatly between the gleaming, mirror-calm waters of the Derwent River and the towering basalt columns of Mount Wellington, Tasmania’s capital city shimmers like a jewel.  Hobart’s harbour is the world’s second deepest, and the fishing fleet based here make the waterfront, with its moorings of gaily-painted boats, a colourful and reflective place to wander. As you would expect, some of Australia’s best seafood comes from the waters surrounding Tasmania. Indeed, Tassie is famous for its food and in the cafés, restaurants and 5-star hotels of Hobart you will be able to experience this at first hand. The fascinating saga of Hobart’s sometimes violent colonial history is woven deeply into the city’s fabric. These days, however, areas such as Salamanca Place and Battery Point, once a part of the penal system but now lovingly restored, are home to some of the city’s best luxury hotels. You can spend hours exploring Hobart’s pleasant, leafy streets and with its compact layout you will never be far from a good coffee, a superb meal, and a place to see the light.
