The Best Walks around Hobart & Southern Tasmania

Cradled between kunanyi/Mount Wellington and the meandering course of the River Derwent, Hobart has been sculpted by the forces of nature, and, with untamed wilderness bounding its perimeters, there are a network of walks near Hobart to be tackled. The Salamanca to Kunanyi hike is a perfect walking track in Hobart for combining parts of the city and bush into one day, or, the Battery Point circuit is an idyllic way to get acquainted with the city’s history and food and arts scene. Just over an hour’s drive south east of Hobart, the Tasman Peninsula offers walks such as the four-day Three Capes trek, an exploration across one of Australia’s most impressive coastlines. From easy walks for the whole family, to overnight trips for the hiking devotees, there are walks around Hobart suited to everyone.
