Located right on the estuary of the Derwent River (extending along both of its banks, in fact) is Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart. It was originally founded as a penal colony and, today, the port is the second-deepest natural one in the world.

Even though the city has quite a mild, temperate oceanic climate, it does have access to a number of beaches. This has made it quite a popular tourist destination amongst local and international travelers.

The home of the Tasmanian Devil, many people book hotels in Hobart just to catch a glimpse of these strange creatures in their natural environment. They have been a protected species since 1995, after a facial tumor disease almost wiped them out. The devils can be viewed up close at wildlife parks around the state, such as Taranna on the Tasman Peninsula.

Walkers and campers also look into motel accommodation in Hobart, as the region is also home to spectacular national parks and walks. Mount Wellington is a popular destination, as it’s only 10 minutes drive from the city centre and offers a range of exploration options – from short walks and long hikes to mountain bike tracks and rock climbing.

It is important to also consider the proximity of your hotel in Hobart to all of the amenities that you will require during your stay, from transportation and dining to attractions and the CBD itself.

Getting Here

It is important to remember that Tasmania is separated from the mainland by Bass Strait, so international and interstate tourists generally arrive in Hobart via plane. The airport is only a 15 minute drive from the city centre by car or a 20 minute drive by shuttle bus.

After settling into your budget motel in Hobart, your only public transport option will be the bus network or the handful of private bus services. Information on current services can be found at the Tourist Information Centre.

You also have the option of travelling to and from hotels in Hobart via taxi, which operate freely throughout the city. These can be booked in advance by calling one of the service lines or they can be found at strategically located ranks.


There are a number of attractions in the area that make choosing motel accommodation in Hobart such an attractive choice. Tourists of all ages and interests will have a memorable experience and a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Port Arthur is a must visit for any history buff. Tours of the facility run daily and you can even take a boat ride out to the Isle of the Dead, where those who died at the prison were buried. It will take a little over an hour’s drive to get to this historic gaol from Hobart, but it is well worth the day trip.

A short ferry ride from the city will take you to Bruny Island, which is dotted with walking tracks and lookouts. This is also where the famous Bruny Island Classic surfing competition is held each January.

If you have chosen a hotel in Hobart because you are more interested in the food, art, shopping and music of the region, you will need to pay a visit to Salamanca Place. The original warehouses have been converted into boutique shops and restaurants, whilst a market is held each Saturday.

If travelling around Christmas and New Years, make sure that you check out the Sydney to Hobart yacht race (which is held from Boxing Day until New Years Eve each year). This is an incredibly festive time for the city, so book early!

Where to Eat

Choosing cheap accommodation in Hobart gives you the opportunity to enjoy the cuisine that the region has to offer. The city centre is restaurants galore, many of them specialising in delicious fresh seafood.
