Tasmania: Cities and Vacations

Tasmania Vacations: information about the history of Tasmania and cities.

Reviews

3/7/2010
Overall rating: 8

Tasmania has an area of 90,758 sq km and a population of around 500,000 people. Its capital city is Hobart.

Tasmania is the only island state of Australia. It is located 200 km from the south-eastern region of the continent, from which it is separated by the Bass Strait. A majority of the population lives around the coastal rivers—Tamar and Mersey in the north and Derwent and Huon in the south. The terrain has smoothened mountain ranges, although the central-eastern part is fairly flat in nature. 

The Tasmanian Aborigines were the first to inhabit the island, but the arrival of immigrants resulted in changing cultural patterns. The island enjoys a European heritage that dates back to the early nineteenth century. Tasmanians are known as friendly, pleasant and welcoming people typical of the relaxed island lifestyle that is enjoyed here.

Hobart is the capital city of Tasmania, Australia and is the second oldest capital after Sydney. It is also the home for Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Hobart is filled with tourist spots. Some of them are Louisa’s Walk which is a strolling theater, Penitentiary Chapel that contains Court Rooms, Chapel, Tunnels and Holding Cells, Salamanca Market that includes sandstone buildings, Theatre Royal that presents music and dance, Mount Wellington that is often covered with snow, Battery Point which has historic houses and restaurants, South Bruny National Park that features cliffs, lush green rainforests and remote beaches, Mona Museum and Art Gallery, St. David’s Cathedral which showcases the works of George Bodley who was an Victorian Architect, Seven Mile Beach , Remarkable Cave, Shot Tower...

Hobart 10
I think Hobart is an amazing place and has really beautiful scenic sites and various types of food. It covers a vast area of land. Tourists often comment on Hobart because it is plentiful. Geographers find Hobart an interestig place. Many traditions and cultures were mainly originated here, andit is also known as the pearl of Australia Iit is still a developing city and a home for thousands of people.
