Hobart, Tasmania

These photos dwell on three of Hobart's most visited icons. One is the waterfront area, which has a delightful historic ambience (Hobart is Australia's second oldest capital city). Another is the excellent Salamanca Markets. The other is Mt Wellington, where in winter Hobart residents enjoy being the only Australians to be able to play in snow less than half an hour's drive from their city centre.
