When it Hobart you must walk on all the amazing wharfs here. It is amazing during the day as well as night. There is a wide range of restaurants if you are feeling peckish and great views while walking. This place is so magical.

It's a great place to look at the history of Hobart, watch the beautiful boats, enjoy the water view and eat at the many restaurants and floating food trucks. Definately a great place to visit.

See the boats and have a bite to eat

This is a great place to get in touch with Hobart's historical and contemporary links to the water/sea. There are lots of good restaurants in the area and boats to look at.

Great waterfront site

A great place to wander round at a leisurely pace enjoy the water front views, watch the many boats over a cup of coffee or catch a ferry upstream to Mona. Several good restaurants there too.

Nice whisky
Feb. 2020
Went for the tasting experience, staff were very knowledgeable about their product, and keen to impart that knowledge to you.
The. distillery is modern ,not quiet as characteristic as some of the stills found in Scotland but good enough to make an interesting whisky-One can make purchases at the small shop where they have some of their fine drams for sale.

Gorgeous spot to walk around
Feb. 2020 • Couples
It’s hard to believe you’re in a capital city when you’re here - gorgeous harbour where the cruise ships dock and lovely old fishing boats and a great variety of accommodation, cafes and restaurants .
Some cute sculptures too

had a walk around this part of Hobart harbour and loved the blue skies and fresh air! nothing spectacular - and parking in this area is expensive - but nice for a gentle stroll

Sullivans Cove
Feb. 2019
Sullivans Cove has served as the dock area for Hobart since its founding in 1804. It is one of Australia's deep-water ports. The cove area itself is now known as Macquarie Wharf. Our cruise ship docked there for the passage to explore. Really we didn't have to go far to find seafood restaurants and cafes. We also see all kinds of motor pleasure boats, yachts, tall ships and fishing boats. We saw the Mona Ferry and Police vessels as well. A little further down we saw a group of bronze sculptures at the Franklin Wharf. That was a refreshing great location to explore.Happy Travelling!

Mixed feelings

The historic charm of an old Australian port is all but gone.
The worst culprits are the traffic and the big sheds that block several views.
Some pedestrianising would help a lot.
