A city in Australia little known because of its island location, Hobart is the second oldest city in Australia after Sydney.
It is also the capital of the island of Tasmania, located south of Melbourne a few hours by ferry. The southernmost city in the country, Hobart enjoys a mild climate in summer, but its temperature in winter can drop as much as 5 degrees.
So prefer the months of December, January and February to discover this territory a little forgotten by tourism in Australia. Also note that the rental vans and RVs in Hobart are closed from June to August.
It is worth spending a day or two in Hobart before picking up your van or motorhome.
Do not miss to climb Mount Wellington, 1271 meters high, which overlooks the city. Its summit will offer you a breathtaking view of the city and its coastline.
After enjoying the friendly atmosphere of Hobart, it's time for you to start your road trip in Tasmania.
A good ten days minimum is essential to visit the island of origin of the famous Devil and to have a good overview.
Between mountains, coasts, exceptional flora and fauna, your trip to this part of Australia will delight you with its wild side and its raw landscapes.
A tour of Australia would not be complete without a short stay in one of the cradles of Australian society.
