I got off at South Hobart Village when riding the Red Decker "Hop On Hop Off" Bus yesterday. A nice setting - peaceful even on a weekday. Spent about an hour walking around before reboarding another Red Decker.

We stayed in South Hobart and found it to be a great location, it pays to go for a drive to see some lovely heritage homes. Fabulous how they have been preserved where in other cities the older homes are being torn down to allow for new developments.

South Hobart is an excellent base if you're staying in Hobart. Food in "salad bowl" is a must, can live without cooking from food here. Fresh, tasty and good value. Views of the mountain with snow is a bonus. Close to the city but quiet and available little cafes everywhere.

South Hobart has the Rivulet Walk, the Female Factory and the Cascade Brewery. There are a few good shops on Macquarie Street in Sth Hobart but the real attraction for me is the variety of architecture from the 1800's situated between Macquarie and Davey Streets ranging from workers cottages around Macquarie St to mansions up on Davey Street. The back... More

Was lovely and easy walking, but so cold we didn't get too far, better in warmer weather I think. 3 deg was a bit cold.

On our recent visit we found south Hobart a great central base, plenty of shopping venues as well as great places to eat, the people were friendly and more than willing to help with directions, as we did seem to get lost quite a bit

The Hobart Rivulet Track is an easy pleasant walk starting at the intersection of Collins & Molle Streets (walk through car park to find start of track) following the watercourse through Hobart Linear Park finishing at the Cascade Brewery. The path is wide and mostly flat but there is an opportunity to add an uphill climb if you choose to... More
