When deciding on the next place to visit, the Tasmanian capital could very well be the perfect destination. Your stay there will be exciting and dynamic, while also relaxing and refreshing. Don’t even get me started on all the beautiful things you will get to see there. Okay, I guess I got myself started on that one and there’s now no coming back from it. Truth be told, I’m really excited to tell you about all the amazing sites that you should visit in Hobart.
As every single traveler would be, you are probably concerned with the two most significant things of every vacation. That is your accommodation and your itinerary. Well, I’m here to try and solve both of those issues. As you can see at www.wrestpoint.com.au/accommodation-wrest-point, you will be able to find some amazing places to stay while in Hobart, but we will get to that later. First, I want to get you familiar with the amazing places to see and thus help you create that itinerary.
If you are interested in experiencing the most beautiful view of the whole city while also being surrounded by perfect landscapes, and I am guessing that everyone is interested in that, then my first suggestion is Mount Wellington. This should definitely have a special place in your itinerary, because the view that I am talking about is astoundingly breathtaking and spectacular. You can just enjoy and get lost in the whole scenery, or you might want to take a few memorable photographs. Mount Wellington is like a place from a fairy-tale, so you can rest assured that your photos will be amazing.
There are a couple of ways you can reach Mount Wellington. The easiest one is, of course, by car. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, though, you can join a tour group and conquer the mountain on foot with the help and the assistance of a tour guide. In case you need even more adrenaline, you can climb it on foot all on your own, but I must warn you that you shouldn’t even try this if you don’t know what you are doing. It takes some skills, which is why a tour guide is your perfect option.
Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens
Planted over 200 years ago, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens are the second oldest botanical garden in Australia. You surely wouldn’t want to leave Hobart without taking a look at all the exotic plants growing in this garden. If you decide to pay a visit to this astonishing place, you’ll see a cactus collection, a fuchsia house, a serene and peaceful Japanese garden, as well as an Antarctic plant house and a lot more amazing things. There’s also a shop here if you feel like taking a souvenir such as botanical gin or honey. Read more about the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
The Salamanca Market
Being in Hobart on a Saturday is certainly a great experience. Almost 50 years ago, a tradition of putting up stalls of Salamanca Place has been started and it has remained one of the biggest spectacles in Hobart up until today. All kinds of sellers offer their merchandise every single Saturday from early morning until the afternoon. If you are planning on taking something from Hobart with you, then you should definitely think about spending a Saturday there, because this is when you will get to see and buy things like handmade jewelry, art, collectibles and a lot of other beautiful things, including fresh local ingredients that will help you get the taste of the Tasmanian food and culture.
The Museum Of Old And New Art (MONA)
Speaking of culture, it would really be a shame to leave Hobart without visiting the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) which has been opened in 2011. Don’t let the exterior of the museum fool you, since it is only one story tall. When you actually enter the place, it sinks three levels into the ground, while revealing beautiful new and old art all the way. I’m pretty sure you don’t want to miss out on the experience of going below ground to see Ancient Egyptian sarcophagi and other amazing works.
How To Find Accommodation
The above mentioned places are only a fraction of what you will be able to see in Hobart, but you will also need somewhere to sleep, leave your things, eat and freshen up from time to time. If you don’t think that accommodation is that important, let me just remind you of the fact that the experience of visiting even the most beautiful place on Earth will certainly be tarnished and spoiled if you end up staying in an unpleasant and disagreeable hotel. This is why you should give it your best shot to find the perfect place before you leave for Hobart.
Once you start searching, you will see that there really are a lot of hotels to take into consideration and all of those will be claiming that they can give you the best Tasmanian experience. It’s only logical that not every single place can be as good as advertised, which is why you should focus more on doing your own research than on trusting the advertisements that will start popping up once you type in the keywords in your browser.
For starters, take a look at the websites of some of those hotels that you have in mind and try to find out as much as possible about their rooms, the amenities and the services they offer. Then, try to figure out how satisfied previous guests were with their overall stay in specific hotels by searching for and reading comments, reviews and ratings that those previous guests might have left online. This way, you will be able to check the reputation of the hotel as well as the quality of all the services that they are offering, which will certainly come in handy and help you decide on the perfect accommodation.
