Hobart is an administrative centre of island Tasmania. It settles down in a mouth of the river Dervent at bottom of mountain Vellington. The history of Hobart is not less sated, than at other oldest cities of Australia.
Hobart has been founded in 1804 and till now has kept colour of that epoch. However, Englishmen have lodged in these not-affable places not absolutely at the will.

But since the river Dervent has been recognized by the best Australian deep-water harbour, and its vicinities - the center of sale of whales and seals, Hobart has quickly turned to large and succeeding port.

It occupies the area 10813 km2 and includes four national parks, two state reserves, two nature protection zones and the state woods.

In park the unique opportunity to get acquainted with its inhabitants, including opossums, walabi as they approach very close to your place of residing pending that will treat them something is presented.
Tasmania is a frequent place of carrying out of the various festivals, most popular of which is the Summer festival taking place just in Hobart and spent usually in the end of December - the beginning of January.
