City Guide: Hobart, Tasmania
Whether you're visiting Tasmania for Dark MOFO (on at the time of publish) or simply to see what life's like at the end of the world, there's a lot to do on this tiny Australian island. Hobart, the capital, has a rich history despite a sometimes forgotten...
CITYGUIDES
Hobart
Hobart used to be a bit of a forgotten city—oftentimes ridiculed by residents of mainland Australia—but over the past several years, this tiny island town has begun to shine and become one of the most visited destinations in the country. The historic...

The Winston
As cliched as it may seem, seeking out a quintessential Australian pub while traveling through the country is kind of a must. And though gastro-pubs may be more popular, there's nothing quite like a classic, no-frills institution. The Winston is a...

Lark Cellar Door and Whisky Bar
Back in 1992, Bill Lark wondered why—considering Tasmania is the perfect place to make malt liquors—nobody was making malt whisky. From the climate to fresh and soft water, highland peat bogs, and fields of barley, the environment supports the production...

Aloft
Located on the top floor at the end of the recently refurbished Brooke Street Pier, Aloft has floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the River Derwent and Sullivan’s Cove. It would be understandable, then, for visitors to assume the floating restaurant...

Born in Brunswick
Contrasting the pale wood and white fabrics of Born in Brunswick's interior are the wildly colorful dishes. From the spiced hotcake (with sweetened matcha tofu, fresh and fermented fruits and grapefruit curd) to the sweet red miso eggplant (with sesame...
CULTURE
MONA
Almost as fascinating as the remarkable art collection at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) is its origin story. Hobart local David Walsh created (at a young age) a gambling system that meant he—and later, his team—would win millions on sports and horse...
HOTELS
Henry Jones Hotel
A converted warehouse and factory, The Henry Jones is Australia's first art hotel and it blends an industrial design with luxury, heritage and modernity in a manner that is ultimately warm and appealing. What used to be a jam factory, the building...

Jackman & McRoss
Much more than fresh bread, classic pastries and great coffee, Battery Point institution Jackman & McRoss has plenty of Tasmanian (and wider Australian) specialities on offer. This light-filled cafe has a distinctly Victorian style—with old-fashioned...
