Hobart Guide

A Brief History

The city of Hobart was first established in 1804, along the banks of the Derwent River; making it Australia’s second oldest city. At this time, the majority of residents were convicts sent to Australia from Britain. While some convicts were placed in prisons, the majority helped to build government buildings and houses, while others set up their own businesses. The transportation of convicts to Tasmania (then called Van Diemen’s Land) was abolished in 1853, and the island became a self-governing colony until the Commonwealth of Australia was officially formed in 1901. Although Hobart was no longer a penal colony at this point, the reputation followed the city for several more decades. Despite a few periods of financial hardship in the late 19th century and during the World Wars, Hobart became a thriving hub of industry focused around industries such as fishing and shipbuilding. In 1958, the Princess of Tasmania ferry began to operate between Melbourne and Tasmania, increasing tourism to the island state, affectionately dubbed the Apple Isle. Today, Hobart is a thriving centre for art, history, and natural beauty that you can take in by booking Cairns to Hobart flights with Webjet.
