How to spend 48 hours in Hobart, Tasmania

17 comments















A couple of weekends ago, my mum and I took an early morning flight and stayed in Hobart overnight. Compared to Melbourne, Hobart feels like a country town. It’s quaint, filled with rich history and old architecture. It’s a beautiful spot and a great place to spend a weekend.

Day #1

Stop #1: Salamanca Market

The Salamanca Market is an icon of Hobart. The market takes place in Salamanca Square between the harbour and the beautiful old buildings that line the street. The market is filled with fresh produce, food, flowers, home wares and interesting trinkets. 

Stop #2: Museum of Old and New Art (MoNA)

Firstly, the museum is set within the most beautiful location. It is on the edge of harbour and built within a rock face, so essentially the museum is a giant cave. The museum is a modern art lover’s dream. I wouldn’t say I’m a modern art lover, but the museum was definitely an interesting experience. 

Stop #3: Mt Wellington

After MoNA, we drove up to Mount Wellington, a 1.2km high mountain, and braced ourselves for the temperature drop. The views of Hobart from the mountain were incredible, and so was the wind. I felt like my face was being blown off, but it was worth the views.

Day #2

Stop #1: Wharf

Along the wharf are floating restaurants, we spent our afternoon eating a seafood feast and walking around the beautiful pastel coloured buildings.

Stop #2: Royal Tasmanian Botanical Garden

We strolled along the beautifully themed gardens of the Royal Tasmanian Gardens, which included an Sub-Antarctic Plant House. But then it started raining…

Stop #3: Cascade Brewery

To escape the rain, we visited Cascade Brewery, Australia’s oldest brewery from 1824 that is still operational today. The grounds of the brewery are immense and also include a heritage-listed garden. Deciding against a beer tasting paddle, we warmed up with some coffee and cakes. 

It was a beautiful weekend in Hobart, I’d love to go back to Tasmania and explore the state’s nature. Have you been to Tasmania and how long did you stay for?

Thanks for reading!
