Hobart - Share My Snaps

 

We only had three days in Hobart but it was still enough to see what this fabulous island has to offer. From the historic architecture, the fabulous art, country feel and stunning nature.

Every night after dinner we'd go hunting for Bioluminence, and were lucky enough to find it two of the 3 nights, but not lucky enough to get good photos of it.


We drove an hour out of town to see some convict heritage and the stunning scenery, as well as spot some seals and other wildlife. They had followed a mother and baby orca the day before but alas no luck for us.

The jagged rock formation and towering cliffs were stunning.

We were in a small inflatable so were able to go inside some narrow sea caves too.


On the last morning before checkout, I went for a two hour walk through the city and the botanic gardens and basically felt I was far away in the countryside and bush. It was beautiful.


This is looking at Parliament House. Hobart is a fabulous gateway and Tasmania is definitely top of my list to explore further, with more time.

See also Cubed Espresso Bar which was probably the most delightful find of the trip.

  2. Oh lovely. I was there about 15yrs ago with a friend and very much enjoyed my visit. We went out in a boat as well and so I recognise one or two of those photos. I'd love to see more of Tasmania.

  3. We have booked to visit Tasmania in October so thanks for the post. I'm looking forward to it as I've never visited Tassie before. Your photos are lovely and I'm now excited to be going

  4. Tassie is so beautiful. We did the ferry and drive when the kids were little. I loved Hobart though we didn't explore it much with so many young kids. We went to see Port Arthur. Great shots. Must return while prices are so good.

  5. I love Hobart - one of my favourite places. We used to go every year for the running festival and I can't wait to go back! Will add Cubed Espresso to the list.

  8. You are one happy woman when travelling and discovering. Have you read Julia Baird's book Phosphescence? She visited Tassie for the bioluminesence..and I cannot spell either word.Thank you for linking up for Life This Week on Monday 17 May 2021. It is a great community here and I am always pleased to see your post linked. Next week, the optional prompt is Self Care Stories. I look forward to seeing you then too. Denyse.

  9. What a wonderful place to visit. You've got me thinking! I wasn't sure exactly what bioluminescence was, but having Googled it, I now know it's something I'd love to experience!

    1. My picture is terrible. If you are on FB there are groups that post where it is and some truly AMAZING shots. Seeing it tho, was magnificent - it glowed against the pier and massive blue sparkles - I just couldn't get the photos
