Hobart is the capital city of the island state of Tasmania. Established in 1803, the city is Australia's second oldest capital city and is the administrative centre of Tasmania. It is located in the state's south-east, between the Derwent River estuary and scenic foothills. Nearby Mt Wellington at 1,271 metres provides a wilderness experience within 20 minutes' drive from the city. Hobart is a great base for further exploration of Tasmania.
Hobart's climate is temperate with a maritime influence. It gets less sunshine hours than most mainland cities, but has the most hours of sunlight in summer of any Australian city due to its southerly location. It is the last port of call for the Australian Antarctic Division.
