Hobart, Tasmania

31 March – 3 April 2018

Pic 2018-0331 04 Hobart Wharf Area (8) Edit

Hobart is the capital of Tasmania and the largest city on the island. At a population of 225,000 it is roughly the size of Richmond, Virginia. Hobart reminded us of Wellington, New Zealand, just smaller and less windy. We spent several days exploring the city and surrounding areas.

Mount Wellington to the west of Hobart provides 360-degree views of the city and surrounding suburbs. At the summit, we were surprised to find how the temperature dropped and the wind gusted dramatically compared to the city and various lookouts on the way up.
