Indeed we constantly update the visitor information and find it is helpful for guests to read at leisure. The library of books and videos add to the Tasmanian cultural experience. And being your hosts was special too.

About the neighbourhood
Local attractions within walking distance of Sonningview are Long Beach, Nutgrove park, and historic Alexandra Battery. Spectacular views of Mt Nelson and Mt Wellington pinnacles and both can be reached by car less than 10km away. We are a convenient base for day trips outside Hobart. Half day trips to wineries. Excellent restaurants, cafes and food outlets within a kilometre or two from the apartment.
Getting around
Buses travel past our property which take you to all parts of Hobart and south but of course if time is short your own car is the best option. Uber has come to Hobart. A ferry from Hunter St wharf takes you to MONA if you wish. For energetic travellers buses and walking are the main forms of transport if you choose not to bring a car. We can supply all the bus schedules. Bicycles are for hire downtown. Kayaks on Long Beach can be hired to explore the Derwent River.
How to get there
We are 20 km from the airport. Taxis from Hobart Airport or a Transit bus is the least expensive option and will stop off in the city and finally at Wrest Point Hotel Casino. A bus to Sonningview is just 3km away but we would arrange to collect you at no charge. Car hire pre booked for collection from the airport is available by several hire companies. A stop off at Battery Point is along the way to our place. Handy if you are passing through during Salamanca's famous Saturday outdoor market.
