Hobart, Australia 

Tasmania’s capital Hobart is a loveable little city with an international flair. It has one of the finest deep-water harbours anywhere, and a colourful waterfront bustling with activity.

Saturated in colonial history, Hobart is guaranteed to keep you busy. Tread the ancient boards of the Theatre Royal, troop through the Anglesea Barracks, say a prayer in the Penitentiary Chapel, or take the weight off your feet with a cruise on the harbour.
