Hobart’s culinary credentials
Hobart’s culinary credentials are on the rise, ranging from cool cafes to upscale restaurants. From multi-course tasting menus paired with superb Tasmanian wines, to cafe meals with mojo . Tasmania is home to seven unofficial wine regions that are renowned for producing first class cool-climate pinot noir, chardonnay, and sparkling wine. The region is an ideal place to make cool climate wines really shine. Tasmanian Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular have commanded the attention of the world for their heightened flavours, aromas and elegance.
In terms of heritage, Tasmania is scattered with charming townships with a range of delightful shopping markets that are steeped in colonial history, and also a haunting history evoked by convict ruins, including the world famous Convict Penitentiary Port Arthur.
Hobart’s cultural claim to fame is MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art. This architectural marvel houses some of the most innovative and enduring contemporary artworks ever produced. Stopover at the enigmatic museum, it will not disappoint. It has changed Hobart the same way the Guggenheim Museum has done to Bilbao, Spain.
