Hobart, to its inhabitants, is the crowning jewel of Tasmania and is well worth discovering on your one-way Cruisin' adventure. The city has a myriad of attractions and can be explored in a short amount of time thanks to its manageable size. Walk the streets of historic Salamanca Place perusing art galleries or dining alfresco at one of the many cafes before making your way to Brooke Street Pier to catch the iconic Mona Ferry (sample some of the state's boutique produce on your way to the terminal). Save at least half a day for exploring the Museum of Old and New Art before dining at the wharf or North Hobart, areas known for their top notch restaurants catering to a variety of budgets.
