Hobart was founded in 1804, when Lt Governor Collins moved the main southern settlement from Risdon to Sullivan's Cove. Today it is a beautiful city to explore, live in & enjoy. Mount Wellington towers over the city giving many delightful photos to remember the walks around the parliament buildings & gardens.
The Cove is now a major waterway for Hobart's many vessels & has seen historic journeys leave for Antarctica, whale saving boats, Antarctic exploration ships & pleasure cruisers arrive in port along with the summer spate of Cruise Ships.
People love the laid back energy of the wharf area, December sees the yachts from the Sydney Hobart Yacht race vie for attention during the Taste of Tasmania Festival.
Many visitors come for the Salamanca markets, a great place to see some of the Conservatorium of Music's performers sing & play their instruments while tourists & locals eat & shop. The Museum of Old & New Art Ferry sends it's art lovers down the Derwent River for a foray into the magical & sometimes weird.
