Hobart is unlike any capital city you have ben to before, on Saturday hit our waterfront and go to Salamanca Markets - this is the best place to buy souvenirs and purchase local wood and foods.

Once you have had you fill of the markets head over to the floating fish markets at constitution dock - here in December the Sydney to Hobart yachts moor, and in winter the crayfish boats hang until the season opens again - this is the best place to buy fresh seafood

Having Survived the markets head up the Mountain, or if your high energy walk up from Ferntree, its tough there are ladders and this in not for the unfit to try.

For those of us her prefer not to see if we can make our legs fall off - drive up the mountain and take in the views. Once your bored head to the Cascade Brewery and try a selection of their beers.


For those of you who prefer to take in the history of Hobart Town - 

What about a pub crawl though battery point, finishing in Salamanca and ending with the Lark Distillary, try their gin, whisky and vodka and get warm.

Peppermint Bay Cruise, Tasmania

Departing from Hobart Cruises in Sullivan’s Cove, Hobart Tasmania the Peppermint Bay Cruise offers a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.  The Tasmanian cruise takes in the picturesque Hobart Harbour and River Derwent, and the magnificent waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel on its way past Bruny Island to Peppermint Bay.

This fully guided half day Tasmanian cruise on board the luxury catamaran, Peppermint Bay II, provides a real connection with the Tasmanian lifestyle, history and wildlife. Take in the magnificent scenery with sea eagles and sun baking seals.

Flat screen plasma televisions beam back images from under the water via our unique spy ball cameras, allowing our passengers to see the abundance of sea life in our clear, calm waters: playful dolphins, floating fish farms, sea gardens with giant kelp, crayfish, weedy sea dragons and puffer fish are just some of the beautiful sea creatures seen on any given day.

There are some great day trips you can do in the water from Hobart, Cadbury factory tours, Tasman Peninsula tours but the one we recommend is the Peppermint Bay tour.
