About Hobart: Hobart, the capital of Australian province Tasmania, is anything but devilish. Small and charming, Hobart lives by the water. The Derwent River winds through the city, just a few minutes walk from the docks where yachts and fishermen park and work. Fresh, local fish is available in many restaurants, while attractions tend towards the outdoors-y with open-air markets, cruises, and walks up Mt. Wellington is leading the pack.
