Wake at Henry Jones and you’ll likely enjoy the sight of bobbing cray boats in Hobart’s working docks. It’s a favourite of locals and visitors, particularly during events such as the Rolex Sydney to Hobart and The Wooden Boat Festival.
Hobart has a warm-hearted, lively wharf precinct with plenty of drinking and restaurant options. Step into the Brooke Street Pier and dine while ‘floating’ in the same pier that the Mona ferry departs from. Inside, try sheep’s whey vodka and peruse local stalls that reflect a mini-Salamanca Market. Seafood is a must here – from the fish punts to famed Mures. No need to wander far for the latest catch.
