With a handful of strong new players arriving on the Hobart scene to mix things up and champion all things Tasmanian, there’s never been a better time to eat and drink your way around Australia’s southernmost capital.
It’s a no-brainer that Hobart’s eating and drinking should be so good; there are few other places in Australia with such an onslaught of insanely fresh, super seasonal, hyper local everything on its doorstep. Forget food miles; from whiskey to wagyu, saffron to sparkling wine, it’s all made here – and ridiculously well, too.
While the pace of life elsewhere on the Apple Isle might (mercifully) still be as sleepy as it’s ever been, the Hobart bar and dining scene has majorly kicked things up a gear in recent times. Gone are the days when “Slowbart” only had a sprinkling of decent places to eat, today you’ll be struggling to tick off your culinary to-do list in just one weekend.
So, organise your flights and get ready to savour the good stuff. Hobart will be sure to have you dreaming of open fires, harbour views, briny oysters and cosy whiskey bars until you next return.
