I’ve posted lots of photos of this city, but earlier this month we had a bird’s eye view from the top of the tallest building in Tasmania.

We visited the revolving restaurant, seventeen floors above the city, so it was interesting to get a different view of the river, marinas, a visiting cruise ship, of Mount Wellington.IMG_E9983IMG_9986IMG_0014IMG_9991

Also views of our apartment block, from above. We look out towards the casino, from our lounge and balcony. I walk past the casino on my way into the city.IMG_E9997


Our timing was ideal, as day turned to dusk. As the light faded outside, night lights appeared and reflections increased. The meal was delicious with some throw-back touches to the 1970’s and 80’s. Steak cooked at the table, followed by a flamboyant Crepe Suzette.

Wrest Point Hotel Casino, Australia’s first legal casino, opened on 10 February 1973. The 73-meter-tall, dodecagonal hotel tower, with a revolving restaurant, was designed by Sir Roy Grounds. It is a landmark that is nationally identified with Hobart. The complex has expanded over the years now including several restaurants, boardwalk, conference center that hosts art exhibitions, live music, comedy, dances. It’s a popular place for locals and tourists.
