Travel Blogs from Hobart
Day 11: Up for breakfast a little later. Bus did not leave until 8:30. We headed southeast of Hobart to go to Port Arthur. On the way we stopped at another government sanctuary for the Tasmanian devil. They fed the devils while we watched so we could see how they devour their food. They are kind of like an oversized cat that is a …
Well we got away nice and early this morning, had a clear run to the airport and booked our car into the airport carpark. Flight was thirty minutes late getting away and we had a very bumpy flight with lots of turbulence which I didn't like much! Arrived in Hobart, stepped out of the plane and nearly got blown away. Windy but surprisingly not cold …
Flying into Hobart airport is stunning, circle in over the water and I always feels like I've come home when I see the tiny airport surrounded by water, and of course the plane is full of polar fleece.
No snow on Mt Wellington, but it was fairly cool. We went straight for a walk around the Wharf, it is always so peaceful and …

Another thing we had attempted to do all trip was to get some Italian, it's not so common in the smaller towns & if there was a restaurant it was closed on the days we were going through.

Hadley's could be a beautiful Hotel, it is set in a lovely old building in the middle of the city, walking distance to the wharf area and North Hobart. We had a Suite and it was large and had everything you would expect, but it is boring and in need of a renovation. The staff were lovely and very helpful.
