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.
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.
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.
