Travel Tips for Hobart

4 seasons

by katels06

Hobart is a tourist friendly city, your trolley bags, backpacks or whatever else you plan to bring will be fine. As a resident of Hobart all my life I can safely say you need to pack for all conditions and that is not a try to be prepared IN CASE of any weather changes, in Tassie you WILL see four seasons not everyday, every hour. There’s an old joke about Tasmania: ‘If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes’. Light layers are perfect and always have a jumper, always be prepared for a change of weather in Hobart! Walking around Hobart is easy but good, comfortable shoes are necessary.

Take the Ole Ball and Chain to their namesake...

by ATXtraveler about Ball & Chain Grill

I was immediately thrown into deja vu upon walking into the Ball and Chain Grill in Hobart. After all, we had started our journey at her sister restaurant, the Jail House Grill in Launceston, and instantly we were right back there finishing our dining experience of Tassie at the Ball and Chain Grill.

The concept was that you pay for a main meal and you get a free trip or trips to the salad bar! We were able to figure out the trick to this place though... if you order the entree size of the meat, then you can add a salad to it for $4 but you save 8-10 dollars on the overall price!

Mount Wellington, part two

by iandsmith

Over 4,000 ft in height (1270 meters), Mount Wellington is not only a Tasmanian icon, it's an Aussie Icon as well. After Uluru and Kosciusko it's probably Australia's most famous mountain.
It's important to know that the weather up here can be so different from that in Hobart, even though it's only a few kilometres as the crow flies.
I took photographs of the falls in the previous tip when the mountain was shrouded in mist and it was drizzling rain yet, in Hobart CBD, it was a sunny day and hadn't looked like raining.
If you want to explore then getting yourself a map is a smart thing to do, then you can decide on your options as to what you want to do.
One popular pastime among the fit is to ride a bike up to the summit or, if you're less fit but looking for a thrill, there are tours available that will take you up there, supply you with a bike and you can simply go down the hill.
Some people walk it but it's a long hard slog and the weather is so changeable.
It often snows up here, even in summer, and it gets windy......very, very windy at times.
You have been warned.

St. David's Park

by seamandrew

One of Hobart's treasures is St. David's Park. Located in the city center, and just off the famed Salamanca street, it is a haven in a city that hardly needs one yet so beautifully green. Having visited in the summer, we were also lucky to see most of the park's flowers in bloom. Try to include this park on your route when heading towards Battery Point. If memory serves me correctly, this park was once the city of Hobart's cemetary.

For those of you with a passion for botany and horticuluture, St. David's Park has wonderful mature plantings of beech, birches, elms with a scented garden along Sandy Bay Road frontage. IT aslo has mass bulb plantings and a good selection of magnolias, fuchsias, rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.

Princes Park and the Batteries

by seamandrew

When former Governor Sorell arrived in Hobart in 1817, he found the town defenseless, and ordered the construction on Battery Point of the Mulgrave Battery. Hastily built, it was described as 'a poor pitifiul mud fort', armed with old and decrepit ships' guns and with poor visibility over the Derwent.
Governor Franklin, arriving in 1836, found the town still defenseless and after a panic in 1841 when French and American whaling ships visited Hobart (England's enemies at the time), another battery was begun. The Prince of Wales Battery, mounted with ten guns was completed behind the Mulgrave Battery also poorly sited, with limited visibility and vulnerable to enemy fire from the side.
In 1854, with the Crimean War alert, the Albert Battery was built behind the Prince of Wales Battery. Following tradition, it too was poorly sited and poorly equipped.
Both batteries were condemened in 1878 and dismantled. There is no record of what happened to the guns but in 1882 the Battery Reserve was handed over to the City Council as a recreation ground.
In spite of considerable work and expense Hobart was effectively defenseless throughout this period. Ironically, the only time the port was ever of any foreign interest was before the town was founded.
Today Princes Park is a lovely park with a great view of the water and it's sloping landscape is an excellent place to sit back and relax.
