Did you know that Hobart is now one of Australia’s most popular leisure destinations? Research released recently by Tourism Australia shows that Tasmania is now a more popular destination than Queensland.
So what does this popularity mean for your event? To put it simply, not only will you exceed your anticipated delegate numbers, but your delegates will stay longer to experience some of what Tasmania has to offer.
After some ideas on how your delegates can spend a couple of days in Hobart? Then look no further;
MONA is always going to top the list for things to do in Hobart. As one of the world’s leading Modern Art Museums, MONA will challenge and inspire your delegates to think outside the box. If the art is not your thing, don’t worry. We promise you’ll find something else about MONA to marvel at, from the architecture of the site, an amazing Morilla wine or MooBrew Beer or maybe even the ferry that got you there to start with.
The iconic Salamanca Market is held every Saturday (8.30am – 3.00pm) and is a must visit if you find yourself in Hobart over the weekend. Your delegates will have the chance to eat their way around the market thanks to the amazing local produce available to sample, whilst finding some unique handmade gifts to take home with them. There really is something for everyone at one of Australia’s largest and oldest, continuous outdoor markets.
Pennicott Wilderness Adventures
With 6 different experiences available, your delegates will be spoilt for choice when it comes to experiencing Tasmania’s wilderness up close. Departing daily, Pennicott Wilderness Adventures is one of Australia’s leading ecotourism experiences and are a not to be missed chance to get up close and personal with some of Tasmania’s wildlife whilst enjoying the amazing scenery.
Kunanyi / Mount Wellington
Overlooking the city is the spectacular Kunanyi / Mount Wellington. Located just a 20-minute drive from Hobart, your delegates will enjoy panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, South Arm and the Tasman Peninsula.
No other city in Australia has a vista like this one.
