Straddling the Derwent River Tasmania's small capital city sits at the foot of Mount Wellington's forested slopes and combines 19th century heritage, charm and a modern lifestyle in an exceptional setting. With daring art, a dynamic food scene and a wealth of natural attractions, Hobart pretty much has it all.
Founded in 1803 as a penal settlement, Hobart is the second-oldest city in Australia after Sydney and with its captivating history, picturesque waterways, rugged mountains and gourmet experiences there's much to enjoy.
Don't miss Salamanca Place, a short walk from the waterfront, whose 1830s Georgian warehouses are now filled with galleries, theatres, craft shops and restaurants. Every Saturday the iconic Salamanca Market is held and brings the area to life with colours, sounds and aromas of Tasmania while musicians and street performers provide rich entertainment.
Take a walk along Hobart's beautiful working waterfront and the floating Brooke Street Pier. For tasty treats head to Constitution Dock, which is lined with fish punts selling seafood – so why not hire a kayak and feast on fish and chips. At the city's most historic suburb, Battery Point, step back in time and delve into the proliferation of antique, curio and book stores before discovering the homely cafes and restaurants along the strip.
Board a ferry at the Brook Street Pier and sail upstream to the daring Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), a large privately owned museum with an art collection as eclectic as it is provocative. Australia's second oldest museum, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, resides on the waterfront and has something to offer visitors of all ages and interests.
Other noteworthy attractions include the superb Cascade Brewery, where weekday tours involve plenty of history and tastings at the end; the impressive Parliament House; the quaint whaling cottages of Arthur's Circus; the Maritime Museum of Tasmania and, not forgetting the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens featuring over 6,000 plant species along with the incredible sub-Antarctic garden, which is like walking into a freezer full of plants!
We also recommend taking the short drive to the summit of Mount Wellington for unbelievable views, or if cloaked in cloud try the Old Signal Station atop Mount Nelson instead. Also within easy reach of Hobart is Bruny Island, with its many rare and endangered plants and animals or notorious Port Arthur a well-preserved historic convict site.
Spanning 1,490 miles from north to south, Western Australia covers a third of the continent and is the largest state you can visit Down Under. Here, you can experience Australia's sunniest capital city, whitest beach and largest expanse of outback; discover one of the oldest living cultures on earth and UNESCO World Heritage reef and rock formations; enjoy fantastic surf, premium wines, abundant wildlife and sill have lots of reasons to return.
With its five diverse regions, Western Australia is an inspirational travel destination. From sub-tropical wilderness in the north west, to one of the planet's largest fringing reefs on the Coral Coast; from an arid desert landscape in the Golden Outback to Australia's sunniest capital as its hub, and one of the world's biodiversity hotspots in the south west.
In Perth you can enjoy the beach lifestyle, relax in natural bushland, sample world-class local wines and watch an ocean sunset all within just 30 minutes of the city. Averaging 3,000 hours of sunshine a year, it's also the sunniest state capital and boasts a string of 19 beautifully clean and uncrowded beaches, from iconic Cottesloe to the surf mecca of Scarborough. Situated beside the Swan River, the best city views are found from Kings Park and Botanic Garden where you can stroll the treetop walk or picnic among the gum trees.
Known as 'Freo' by the Aussies, Fremantle lies on the coast just south of Perth. It's a vibrant port city which blends the old with new creating an enriching cultural experience. Just half an hour from Fremantle by ferry is Rottnest Island, the only place to see quokkas – a cross between a rabbit and a kangaroo!
Around three hours drive south of Perth is the quaint bustling town of Margaret River, and the only wine region in Australia where you can hop from award-wining wineries and restaurants to stunning beaches, tall-timber forests, world-class surf breaks and ancient caves.
If you have time to explore more we highly recommend Busselton, which lies on a calm turquoise bay and is home to the longest timber-piled jetty in the southern hemisphere; or, the rugged coastline of Albany is breathtakingly beautiful and a fitting backdrop to a dramatic whaling, convict and settler history. The Coral Coast is a stunning region home to beaches, exotic marine life, national reserves and the bluest ocean you'll see anywhere in the world. The North West is one of the world's last true wilderness areas and the place to go for an authentic Aussie outback adventure, while in Kalgoorlie you'll find a mix of gold rush history, grand colonial buildings and immense mining operations.
