Hobart is the capital of Australia’s island state of Tasmania. It was founded in 1804 as a penal colony, the second oldest capital after Sydney.

It is nestled on the banks of the estuary of the River Derwent, surrounded by hills and mountains.

We’ve had beautiful weather during our first week and we’ve enjoyed exploring the city and suburbs.
