The Neck on Bruny Island

Hobart and Sth East

Hobart is a city characterised by nineteenth century sandstone warehouses, bright sails on the water, and fishing boats bobbing in the docks. Just below this historic facade is a vibrant and connected underbelly of producers, artisans and artists. To find them wake early for a farmers market, dine in local eateries or descend into the mind of David Walsh via a spiral staircase at Mona, Museum of Old and New Art. Wherever you go, you’ll feel it in the streets, taste it in the produce and see it in the galleries and on the faces of the people you meet.

Tasmania’s southern urban pulse meets wilderness with dramatic results. Risk-taking artists, passionate producers, inventive chefs and soulful heritage bring light and shade to the capital city Hobart. Venture from the hum of Hobart and see world heritage sites, rainforests, islands and mighty rivers. Southerly offerings will keep you coming back for more.

Hobart and Sth East: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Maritime Museum of Tasmania


As an island state, the sea is significant to all Tasmanians and the islands boast a strong maritime heritage. The Maritime Museum of Tasmania explores the connections between the people of the islands and the influence of the sea on their lives. Discover the craft and art of centuries of Tasmanian ship building from an example of an aboriginal bark canoe through wooden boats to modern aluminium fast ferries. You can learn how important sailing and steam ships were for developing Tasmanian industries exporting raw materials and products of the islands, such as apples, minerals and timber, as well as the influence of early European explorers and whalers. Navigational instruments show how mariners found their way across the seas while archaeological discoveries from shipwrecks around the Tasmanian islands show how challenging, difficult and dangerous the seafarer's life could be.
The Museum can be found in the Carnegie Building, at Sullivan's Cove, a short walk from Hobart's central business district and across the road from Constitution Dock, the historic heart of Maritime Hobart. We are open 0900 until 1700, seven days a week EXCEPT Good Friday and Christmas Day.

Lark Distillery - The


Bill Lark realised that everything you need for a world-class whisky was in Tasmania - rich fields of barley, an abundance of wonderfully pure soft water, highland peat bogs, and the perfect climate to bring all the ingredients together in a marriage of science, art and passion.
The vision of producing Tasmanian malt whisky was born on a trout fishing trip in the highlands of Tasmania. Bill's father-in-law Max produced a wonderful bottle of single malt, and as they enjoyed a drink in the park at Bothwell, surrounded by Georgian buildings, barley fields and the gentle flowing of the Clyde River, Bill remarked to Max, "I wonder why there isn't anyone making malt whisky in Tasmania". This was the beginning of a fantastic journey for the Lark family and the start of the Tasmanian whisky industry that we know today.
Lark Distillery now produce many different products as well as their award winning Single Malt Whisky including, Forty Spotted Rare Tasmanian Gin, Slainte (whisky liqueur), TASI (native pepperberry liqueur) and vodka.

Mawson's Huts Replica Museum


The Mawson's Huts Replica Museum stands on the waterfront in Hobart, near the wharf from which the SY Aurora sailed south to Antarctica with Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14 on board. This world-class small museum gives visitors an historic insight into the daily lives of the AAE expeditioners who spent two winters living and working in the windiest place on Earth - the true 'home of the blizzard'.
"For two years, through two dark winters, the huts were home - a haven of warmth, light and companionship".
The Mawson's Huts Foundation's mission: the ongoing conservation of the unique historic buildings that were built as the base for Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14 at Cape Denison on Commonwealth Bay in January 1912. Assisted by enthusiastic volunteers and staff, all profits from the Museum go towards the conservation of the original huts in Antarctica.
We welcome special interest and school groups. Please call us for a special group rate.

May Queen


Floating in Constitution Dock in Hobart is Australia's oldest sail trading vessel SV May Queen. A significant vessel in the maritime heritage of Australia, SV May Queen is listed at No. 22 on the World Ship Trust register of historic vessels and is included on the Australian Register of Historic Vessels.
Built before the development of roads and land transport routes, this type of vessel helped to establish and supply coastal communities and industry in the South East of Tasmania. The May Queen is recognised internationally as an authentic floating example of the sea craft technology of the mid 1800s.
The May Queen was built on the banks of the Huon River at Franklin, just upstream from where the Wooden Boat Centre is now located. Suitable timber growing near the banks of the river, or close by, was selected by the shipwright Alexander Lawson.
The May Queen is maintained entirely by volunteers. Throughout the year, and in the summer months, volunteers are on hand to show visitors around the vessel.
