Travel Hacks: Free Activities For Your Hobart Adventure

Just because you’re going on holiday doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune. Every destination has free attractions available to those willing and able to seek them out! Here are 10 activities that will cost you absolutely nothing on your next trip to Hobart.

1. Visit the Pinnacle of Mount Wellington

Experience a spectacular vantage point completely free of charge at the pinnacle of Mount Wellington overlooking Tasmania’s capital of Hobart. Admire sweeping views of the city separated by the shimmering blue of the Derwent River.

2. The Royal Botanical Gardens

Pack a picnic and make your way to the Royal Hobart Botanical Gardens located just 5 minutes from the CBD. These expansive gardens are home to variety of flora and fauna and are a charming picnic setting for a family outing.

3. Wander around Battery Point

Hobart’s oldest and most historical area is a dream to explore by foot and won’t cost you a penny. Take a step back in time and admire the sandstone buildings, historical cottages and narrow streets. You can spend an entire morning lost in this beautiful waterside suburb.

4. Visit the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery

For a fun day of learning with the entire family visit the recently revamped Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery (TMAG). This museum is crammed with fascinating exhibitions and cultural history and has no entry fee! Spend a day exploring with the family.

5. Rektango

What is that? I hear you ask. Rektango is a free event held every Friday night in The Courtyard in the historical precinct of Salamanca Place. This alternative and hip event is all about dancing along to a local live band playing the best of soul and reggae. If you have an open mind and itchy feet, this is for you!

6. Free Yoga at Lululemon in Hobart’s CBD

Yoga may not be for everyone, but if it’s free then it’s worth a try! The sports brand of Lululemon located in Hobart’s CBD offers complimentary yoga sessions at 10 am and 6 pm during the week. To find out more about when the classes are on offer you can visit their Facebook page.

7. Absorb the lively atmosphere at Salamanca Market

Salamanca Market held every Saturday is one of the largest markets in Australia and is worth visiting for the vibe alone. Visit the market at around 9 am to experience the hustle and bustle. You also have the chance to enjoy free tastings on your way around. Afterwards sit on the green lawn of Parliament House and people watch.

8. Free Tastings at Cool Wine

Cool Wine, located in the heart of Hobart’s city center offers a range of boutique beer and wine from all over the world. On special occasions they have complimentary evening tastings at their store between 4:30 pm and 6 pm. Follow their Facebook page to find out when the next tasting will take place.

9. Richmond

Just a fifteen minute drive from the Cruisin’ branch you will encounter the historically significant town of Richmond, a beautiful village home to the oldest bridge and gaol in Australia. Find yourself a patch of grass and watch as ducks trail past this stunning bridge that was built by convicts in the early 1800s.

10. A Drive through the Huon Valley

There is nothing quite like a drive through the lush green fields of the Huon Valley located just south of Hobart.  Pull over to explore pristine secluded bays, row by row of apple trees and Willie Smiths Apple Shed, a charming building nestled in the valley and producing some of Australia’s finest apple cider. If you’re lucky you might be able to pluck your own apple straight from the branch.
