How to Dine Like a Local in Hobart

Rena Phuah

I think one thing that attracted me to Hobart is that it is incredibly charming, but equally as underrated. It is also unlike any other city in the country. As soon as I starting exploring the city, it reminded me of a mini-San Francisco—laid-back, cool, and picturesque. The historic district with narrow lanes, colonial-era cottages, and the sweeping view of Mount Wellington from the CBD are worth a visit in itself. As an avid foodie, the reason for my trip to the Tasmania capital was mainly because of its world-class culinary offering—it’s known for its farm-to-table produce and award-winning whiskies. Read on and add my favourite Hobart hotspots to your Tasmanian bucket list.

Note: Calling all whisky fans! You will be very pleased to know that they are two well-known whisky bars in the city—Lark and Nant, which open early daily. We also drove out to award-winning Sullivan Cove distillery for a tasting and a tour—it is on its way to the airport for those who crave some last minute whisky fix before flying off.
