Three Days in Hobart, Tasmania

Hi All! Sorry, this has taken me so long to produce, but I feel like I have been putting off blogging a bit and I’m not sure why. Our visit to Hobart was a bit unusual and when I say unusual I mean that we were barely in the city at all!

Hobart

Patrick and I decided to stay in this AirBnB in Hobart, our host Michael was awesome! He had a rad little granny flat that was about a 10-minute walk from the city center.  On our very first day in Hobart, we visited the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) This was the most interesting museum I think I have every been too. It was full of cool weird things and it often felt like you were getting lost in a maze when walking around. Patrick is not a museum guy so we through the museum a little quicker than I would have liked, but it was still a great time none the less. If you don’t feel like driving to the museum, there is a ferry available from Hobart’s city center.

Patrick and I had a great time exploring the harbor, Salamanca place, and Battery Point. I found Hobart was full of old buildings with beautiful architecture, cute little shops and restaurants made for people watching. The sunset’s over Mount Wellington was like nothing I’ve ever seen before and were always the perfect way to end the day. On our last night, we ended up at Nant’s Whiskey Bar and enjoyed live music whilst sipping my Hot Toddy and Patrick’s Old Fashioned.

Mount Wellington

On our way back from Bruny Island, Patrick and I decided to keep the adventure going and drive up to the top of Mount Wellington. The roads were narrow and full of twists and turns, Patrick was not a fan of driving up the mountain… He said he felt like he was going to end up going off the edge! I wasn’t worried, but I was giving props to the people who decided to either run or bike up this mountain. We made it to the top safely and it was amazing. I felt I could see for miles and I was oddly surprised that the top of the mountain was flat. I wasn’t expecting that.

Cascade Brewery

Our last and final day was spent visiting the Cascade Brewery. Our flight was not until 4 o’clock in the evening so we had a bit of time to waste. The Cascade Brewery was established in 1824 and is Australia’s oldest operating brewery. We missed the brewery tour but ended up staying for a schooner of Cascade’s finest enjoying the sunshine.

    looks like you had an amazing trip! I definitely need to make it out there some time

    I went to Hobart a few years ago and I LOVED it. We only spent 4 days there which is nowhere near enough time. We didn’t do half the things you did! We went down to Port Arthur one day and that was great. Definitely add it to your list next time you go. New Zealand next, lucky ducks, enjoy!

      I would have loved to go to Port Arthur, but we just weren’t able to fit it in our trip. That is a definite must for our next trip to Hobart.
