Guidebook for Sandy Bay

Sightseeing
Iconic, breathtaking views of the entire Hobart area, get here by car, book a tour bus, or get a Metro bus to Fern Tree and walk to the top! There is an observation building at the pinnacle (1271m), and the entire mountain is covered in parks and bushland with walks to suit any age and difficulty.

Not as high as Mount Wellington, but a lovely hilltop reserve with views of the Derwent estuary and short walks and cafe nearby. You can walk from my apartment all the way up this hill (352m) from Lambert Avenue, but it is considerably steep.

The first stop in any visit to Hobart. Historical buildings and vibrant food and drink culture line the deep docks of Hobart's waterfront. Best to wander the whole length of these wharves, stop in at shops and eateries that catch your eye, and walk to adjoining areas of Battery Point, Queens Domain, and the most famous of strips, Salamanca Place.

Iconic street with a marvellous surviving row of old warehouses that are now home to bars, cafes, restaurants and art galleries. Salamanca is the starting point for any stroll around Sullivan's Cove, and the centre of food and drinking nightlife in Hobart.
