Hobart Region

 

Tasmania, Australia

 

Founded in 1803, Hobart is not only the jewelled, state capital of Tasmania; it is also the second oldest city in Australia coming right after Sydney. Hobart sits on both sides of the Derwent River at lies as the base of Mt. Wellington’s slopes. Its streets are narrow and intimate, its buildings, which are made of brick and sandstone, sit intimately close and it has a most quiet and intimate appeal. There are less than 200,000 residents in Hobart which helps to give it a big, small town feel. Life in the town is centred around the port at Derwent River, which is one of the world’s deepest harbours. The port is lined with warehouses that once held the many exports of Hobart (like wool, corn, and fruit).

 

Today there are also additional remnants of Hobart’s past which can be seen by witnessing the city’s former whaling fleet that still sits at the famed wharf. Residents of Hobart have the pleasure of enjoying a plenty of bars, cafes, and waterfront stalls offering good food and company. There are also fabulous restaurants, amazing jazz clubs, and the popular Wrest Point Casino where one can go when feeling lucky! But it isn’t just the residents of Hobart that often takes advantage of what the city has to offer. There are certain parts of the year where the city is known to swell with visitors looking for a good time and seeking accommodation. It could be the Sydney-to-Hobart Yacht Race that happens every summer, the Taste of Tasmania Festival, or some other happening that is going on which draws both Australians, Tasmanians and travellers from abroad to this once penal settlement that has become one of the most beautiful state capitals in all of Australia.

"For it pleased the Father that in Him* all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself,

by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And

you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the

body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight — if

indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the

gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven."

( * Jesus )   Letter to the Colossians  ch.1  vs.19-23.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
