Extraordinary Hobart Holiday

Are you tired of doing the same stuff, staying in ordinary hotels, and eating at fast food joints? Hobart has more to offer and we at VroomVroomVroom have come up with a list of unique things to do during your holiday – from thrilling seaplane tours to historical tours. We also selected distinct accommodation and dining venues to give you an extraordinary Hobart holiday! 

Tasmania Air Adventures

The best way to see the beauty of Hobart's wilderness is by riding a seaplane. Just like Alaska, Tasmania has numerous protected water bodies that are located near populated areas such as Hobart, which makes it more accessible for seaplanes. Tasmania Air Adventures has two DeHavilland DHC-2 Beavers that can take you to iconic destinations – from the scenic Hobart city to the spectacular Cradle Mountain and Gordon River.

Live History!

Go back in time and see how life was in Hobart by watching the shows of Live History! Instead of watching performances in a theatre, you will have to take a stroll outside to see different scenes. They called the strolling theatre Louisa's Walk as it tells the story of a character named Mary James, who was convicted in 1832 for stealing a square of silk. The show begins at the Cascade Brewery then it passes by the beautiful parkland, Hobart Rivulet, and Female Factory.

The Henry Jones Art Hotel

What was once a jam factory, The Henry Jones Art Hotel is now one of the most sought after hotels in Hobart because of its amazing interiors and exteriors. There is art everywhere – from the Peacock Terrace and the Art Installation Suite to the Studio Suites. You will find the works of talented Tasmanian artists exhibited all over the hotel. Art can also be seen at Henry's Restaurant as Executive Chef Andre Kropp creates his own culinary masterpieces.

Garagistes

For a unique dining experience, make sure to drop by Garagistes located along Murray Street. Just like the name suggests, the site of the hip restaurant is a former car rental garage. It is advisable to arrive at the restaurant early because of its no reservation policy and shared table dining. If you're a group of six and above, then you can make a reservation up to 14 days in advance. Chef Luke Burgess has championed the idea of using natural landscape such as edible shore plants, berries, herbs, and weed to add flavour to his dishes. 


Here are other ideas on what to do in Hobart. Check this list out.

Mount Wellington
 - To discover Hobart and take some breath taking views, visit Mount Wellington. The 1270m high mountain is surrounded by lush forest with many options for walks and mountain biking. It is a very popular Hobart attraction. Your rental car will provide you with transport as you drive right to the summit on the sealed road. The mountain often has snow in the winter, so you will need to check that you are not voiding your rental car contract.

Botanical Gardens - Nothing says freedom more than a picnic in a beautiful spot, and what better spot could you find than at the Botanical Gardens. You can enjoy a day in the sun with a good book or the family, just park your rental car up, there is plenty of parking available.

Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery - TMAG - Located on the Hobart waterfront, the TMAG is Australia's second oldest museum and is Tasmania's cultural heart. Catering to all ages, it's collection includes permanent exhibitions on the extinct Tasmania Tiger as well as Tasmania's other native animals and pieces symbolizing  Tasmania's colonial history including works by John Glover.
Situated 15 minutes in your rental car (or 30 ferry ride) from central Hobart, MONA has put Tasmania on the international art stage. It's collection of old and new art includes antiquities and ancient coins as well as custom and sometimes shocking modern art. The site is also home to restaurants, a winery and a microbrewery and is a completely unique experience in Australia.
