The accolades just keep on rolling in for Hobart. Tasmania’s cosmopolitan capital city has once again been recognised as a top global travel destination, this time by readers of the prestigious internet travel site TripAdvisor.

An active arts scene, vibrant nightlife and a unique mash-up of the 19th and 21st centuries are all reasons why readers of the world’s largest travel site rated Hobart as one of the world’s top ten “Destinations on the Rise.” Hobart was one of only two Australian cities named on the list, which recognises destinations that have seen the greatest increase in positive traveller feedback and traveller interest, year-over-year.

This accolade comes just weeks after Hobart was named one of Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities to visit in 2013 in the publisher’s Best in Travel 2013. Lonely Planet advised readers, ‘Now is the time to discover what’s going on down there before the rest of the world catches on’.

Tourism Tasmania’s Acting CEO, Adam Sproule, said “It appears the rest of the world is indeed becoming wise to the energy and excitement that Hobart offers as a top-class travel destination.”

“Hobart has something for all travellers and with the warmer months clearly in sight, visitors from Australia and abroad are encouraged to visit Tasmania now and discover our capital city for themselves,” he said.

The top activity in Hobart according to readers of TripAdvisor is the highly acclaimed Louisa’s Walk – a spine tingling tour that follows the steps of Louisa’s conviction and transportation to Hobart’s infamous Female Factory during the cities dark past. The tour allows visitors to truly immerse themselves in the haunting history and culture of the city.

The colourful Salamanca Market also proved popular with readers. Held every Saturday in the historic Salamanca precinct, the markets feature a vibrant mix of gorgeous handmade arts and crafts and farm fresh produce. Visitors can forage for ingredients or gifts whilst tapping their feet to buskers performing an eclectic mix of blues, jazz and folk music.

There was more but – isn’t it good to live in such a fabulous little city in this wonderful place “The little tear drop on the bottom of the world”?  and yes we are very proud of what we do at Louisa’s Walk!
