This 20-seat neighbourhood restaurant is a complete surprise. Shared food with Italian bent paired with unique and interesting wines. The chef's tasting menu was fantastic, and communal table a fun dining experience.
The Richmond Bakery
Curried scallop pie is a very Hobartian thing. Tried a few around Hobart, and the Richmond Bakery has the best ones. Located in a quaint little village, about 20 minutes drive from Hobart city.
Sullivans Cove Distillery
Award winning whiskies made using only Tasmanian ingredients. Very personal tasting experience at the distillery. Worth the hype, however, the whiskies are quite pricy.

Hobart, Australia
Creative tasting menu focussing on local and seasonal ingredients. Most wines are organic or biodynamic - choose your wine from the walk-in wine room.

Spectacular views over Hobart! Note that the road to the top is quite narrow and curvy, and be prepared that it's windy and much cooler. This is a must do in Hobart.
MONA: Museum of Old and New Art

"Subversive adult Disneyland". Ancient antiquities and contemporary works - sexy, provocative, disturbing and deeply engaging. MONA is an adventure and a must do in Hobart! Arrive in style by MONA ferry in the 'posh pit'.

National Park
Wineglass Bay in Freycinet National Park is one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Spectacular views over the bay from the lookout. Note that the descent to the bay is steep and rocky - but it's worth the effort.
Cape Hauy
Scenic Lookout
Magnificent views of steep cliffs and spectacular offshore sea stacks known as The Lanterns. The walking track includes many, many stairs - but it's worth the effort.
