How To Explore Hobart By Campervan

Campervan hire Tasmania is an enduringly popular holiday option for many in Australia and the island state of Tasmania is one destination that is a great fit for those looking for the freedom of travelling in a campervan. Here are a list of things to do in Hobart and places to see in Hobart if you have a campervan hire.

Like any great holiday experience, planning your trip in advance is key to making your stay in our wonderful state both interesting and carefree. Luckily Tasmania offers a range of different experiences and journeys yet remains small enough that travelling between destinations can be done at a lazy pace, which is fortunate as there is so much to see and do along the way!
One of Tasmania’s popular destinations is the capital Hobart, Australia’s second oldest city.

Make sure you schedule your trip so that you’re in Hobart on a Saturday. You don’t want to miss Salamanca Market, a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. However if you can’t be here over a weekend during the week Salamanca Place is still worth a visit for its wonderful restaurants, bars, boutique shops and galleries not to mention its gorgeous converted sandstone warehouses that make up Salamanca Place.

Founded in 1803 Hobart retains many of its original buildings, making it one of Australia’s more picturesque capitals. If you’re not game to try a ghost tour at night, make sure you soak up some of our history during the day. The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery in the CBD is definitely worth a visit as is the Theatre Royale, Australia’s oldest theatre and the Royal Botanical Gardens, which is just a short walk from the city centre.

Overlooking Hobart is Mount Wellington, or simply ‘The Mountain’ to locals. Often covered in snow it makes a beautiful back drop for the city, but also provides numerous day walks, lookouts and picnic opportunities all within a 10 minute drive (in your camper of course) of the CBD.

There always seems to be something on in Hobart, so no matter what time of the year you plan your motorhoming trip there’s bound to be a festival to visit. Hobart plays host to many events including The Summer Festival (which includes the renowned Taste of Tasmania and the finish line to the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race), The Australian Wooden Boat Festival, Hobart Fringe Festival, MONA FOMA, Tulip Festival, parts of Ten Days on the Island and stages of TARGA Tasmania plus many more.

You’ll want a few days to explore Hobart so make sure to hire your campervan in to one of the many holiday parks in the city surrounds and take your time soaking up all Hobart has to offer.
