Welcome to the striking capital of the famous Apple Isle. At the heart of Tasmania’s tourism boom, Hobart is the second-oldest city in Australia and easily one of the most beautiful. It is surrounded by unspoiled wilderness and a scenic coastline, with mountains, forests and historical mysteries to explore. Hire a campervan in Hobart today and enjoy an adventurous self-driven journey around this fascinating Tasmanian town.
Hobart was founded by British colonists in 1804, to prevent French explorers from claiming the state of Tasmania. In the 200 years since, it has grown from an isolated penal colony into a modern metropolis with a population of over 200,000.motor
Why You’ll Love Hobart
Hobart is located in the south of Tasmania, on the edge of the Derwent River. The stunning waterfront part of town attracts tourists and locals alike, who come to enjoy a range of fine cuisine and scenic walks along the river. Dominating the skyline, Mount Wellington stands proudly over the city at an impressive height of 1,271 metres. Visitors can see Hobart spread out in all its glory from the top of the mountain, enjoying panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside.
With its spectacular natural scenery, rich cultural heritage and winding roads, it’s as though Hobart was made for self-driven adventures. Making the journey across the Bass Strait from mainland Australia, or any other part of the world for that matter, is more than worth it to discover the unique beauty of this region.
Our campervan and motorhome hire Hobart branch is located just 2.5 kilometres from the airport and 18 kilometres from the city CBD. We are only a stone’s throw from the popular Coal River Valley wine-growing region and the beautiful and historic town of Richmond, home to the oldest bridge in Australia.

To make the most of your time in Hobart, these are some of best places to visit in and around the city:
- Mount Wellington – Whether you want to walk, cycle or drive, venturing to the top of Mount Wellington gives tourists an appreciation for Hobart’s incredible natural scenery. With ancient walking tracks and cool green forests, it’s an ideal place for picnics and sightseeing. The easiest way to access the mountain in a vehicle is via Pinnacle Road, which goes from the edge of town right to the summit. There are no entry fees to worry about and the mountain remains open to tourists all year, unless there has been an extreme weather event.
- Salamanca Place – This bustling riverside precinct is one of Hobart’s premier tourist attractions. Lined with old sandstone buildings, cafés, art galleries and fashion boutiques, visitors can spend hours wandering the cobbled streets of Salamanca Place, soaking up the laidback atmosphere and waterfront views. Built in the 1800s in support of the town’s maritime industry, it is one of Hobart’s oldest suburbs. Located in Sullivan’s Cove, the main square comes alive with the Salamanca Markets every Saturday, featuring hundreds of stalls selling clothes, homewares and a delicious array of food.
- Battery Point – A maze of old cottages and laneways, Battery Point is steeped in history. It was built by some of Hobart’s first residents, and is now considered one of the more upmarket parts of town. The buildings may be painted in fresh coats of paint and there’s probably more coffee shops these days than there were a hundred years ago, but the passage of time hasn’t changed Battery Point very much, and walking around its winding streets is like stepping back into the past.
