Hobart

The moment you land the Fresh air hits you.

Hobart is that inner peace you have been looking for,  the people make you feel like part of their growing community and with an array of cafes and stunning day trips it's the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle. 

Brunch & Coffee

Pigeon Hole

93 Goulbourn St, West Hobart
Tasmania 7000

A gorgeous cafe,  which serves vibrantly beautiful breakfast and lunch dishes in West Hobart. Packed with flavour its no surprise that the produce is sourced from their very own farm (Weston Farm) making for a fresh seasonal menu which is sure to delight. On premise chutneys, jams and salts for a Hobart memento. 

Small Fry

3/129 Bathurst St, Hobart
Tasmania 7000

God-damn good coffee, and great food. This local gem has an open bar and kitchen setup which lets you talk to the chef as he whips up your omelette or porridge. Friendly staff, make you feel part of the family as soon as you walk through the door. A favourite! 

Produce

Farmgate Markets

104 Bathurst St, Hobart
Tasmania 7000

Bathe in the Spring sun and your cares away at the Sunday Farmgate Markets. Filled with locals and fresh produce a plenty, it's the perfect place to grab a brekkie bite whilst you watch the local pack their totes with fresh veg for the week to come. 

And to indulge: Choose from a variety of cheeses, spreads and my favourite the Sourdough Donuts. Filled with seasonal fillings each week, they are a must have!

 Hill Street Grocer

70 Arthur St, West Hobart
Tasmania 7000

A cheese mecca, which lets you indulge in a variety of the good stuff. With friendly staff on hand to help you refine your selection, and an oh so pretty homewares section you will have an insta-worthy platter in no time!

Sweet-Tooth

With classic Parisian vibes, Daci Daci delivers on a delectable patisserie favourites with the welcome addition of a breakfast & lunch menu. Come here for fresh bread baked daily on the premise, or indulge in a tea and cake. 

Jackman & McRoss

57 Hampden Rd, Battery Point
Tasmania 7004

An institution in Hobart, Jackman & McRoss offers the nostalgia of a great Australian bakery without the frills. From lamingtons, apple scrolls, coconut slice and fresh sausage rolls this is the perfect place to catch up with a friend or watch the locals walking their variety of pups over a coffee. 

Easy Drinking

Preachers

5 Knopwood St, Battery Point
Tasmania 7004

A pub, with an outdoor beer garden &  parked bus for seating. That's right a fully stationed school bus where you can sip on pints and play uno. With a great selection of beers on tap, and tasty burgers this is the perfect way to spend a Friday night. 

New Sydney Hotel

87 Bathurst St, Hobart
Tasmania 7000

A little piece of Ireland in the heart of Hobart, with classic pub food done so well you will be ruined for life. Pints a plenty, and Irish jigs on repeat it's a local haunt for a reason. 

Quartermasters Arms

132-133 Elizabeth St, Hobart
Tasmania 7000

An old house converted into a vinoteca, perfect for sharing a bottle of wine by the fire. Relaxed, chilled, easy are all words that come to mind when I think of the Quartermasters Arms. 

Society - Salamanca

22 Montepellier Rt, Battery Point
Tasmania 7004

A wide selection of fine liquors, ask and you shall receive. Fine vibe, with mean drinks mixed! 

Day Trips

Tahun

A 1.5 hour drive to a beautiful rainforest. You can walk amongst the trees in their air-walk and take in the most breathtaking view of the merging rivers. Walk through the rainforest and take in all the small beauties, mushrooms, moss and some of the oldest trees I have seen. A spectacular day trip!

MONA

Just a 20 minute drive from Hobart city, you can be here in no time. Or catch the ferry over, for a more serene arrival. 

One of the most interesting museums I have visited with a fascinating mix of ancient (read Egyptian mummies) and boundary pushing art (Tattoo Tim.) Stunning building and surrounding grounds, you are guaranteed to walk away spell-bound. 

Accommodation available on site, with breathtaking views over the lake. With a cellar door on the property, and some of Hobart's best fine-dining options you won't be short on things to do, It's the magical world of David Walsh after all.  

 

MT. WELLINGTON

While it doesn't take the whole day, it's well worth the visit up to Mt. Wellington. A breath taking view of Hobart and beyond. Can be hiked for the more adventurous (this might take a day!), otherwise the  drive up is around 15 mins!
