Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery, culture, with world-class activities and attractions nearby. Nestled amongst the foothills of Mt Wellington, Hobart combines heritage charm with modern lifestyle in a setting of exceptional beauty. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet has called Hobart one of the top ten spots to visit in the world.
Take a walk along Hobart’s iconic waterfront then take a ferry or bus up the river to MONA (Hobart's iconic Museum of old and new art) for an out-of-this-world modern art experience just minutes from the track.
It’s easy to fall for the many charms of this quietly buzzing city that hits fever pitch during major social events including the Dark MOFO Winterfest, and the Taste of Tasmania Summer Festival.
The home of the TRC - TAB Park Elwick, is situated in the northern suburbs of Hobart and is only a short ten-minute drive from the centre of Hobart. Hire a car, catch a cab or look up the Metro bus service website for timetables.
