Hobart

Hobart is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. The city is located in the state’s south-east on the estuary of the Derwent River, making it the most southern of Australia’s capital cities. Its harbour forms the second-deepest natural port in the world. Its skyline is dominated by the 1,271 metres Mount Wellington, and much of the city’s waterfront consists of reclaimed land. It is the financial and administrative heart of Tasmania, serving as the home port for both Australian and French Antarctic operations and acting as a major tourist hub.
