Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, is the second oldest city of Australia. Structural alterations from colonial times are caringly well-tended and preserved by the inhabitants.
Hobart is located on the coast where the Derwent River is colliding with the sea, Mount Wellington at the capital's back. Cultural heritage in connection with natural realities is leaving a picturesque impression. Hustle and bustle in the harbour and small downtown cafés and bars are inviting visitors and residents to stay.
The beautiful sandstone warehouses at Salamanca Place are demonstrating a unique example of construction in colonial times.
Greengrocer's shops up to antiques shops are established in these buildings today. You can also visit the Salamanca Arts Centre in the same district. This centre is offering quarters to 75 art organisations from all categories.
Batterie Point, the old harbour, is worth sightseeing, too. The area around the old harbour of Hobart was a glamorous little town in colonial times.
Next to the historical buildings there is another specialty you should not miss at all: the Cadbury Chocolate Factory. This chocolate factory is located approx. 15 km to the north of the centre of Hobart.
Since 1832, Australia's oldest brewery, the Cascade Brewery, is situated approx. 2 km to the southeast of Hobart centre. After application you can visit the brewery as well.
