On the beautiful island of Tasmania, there is no better place to stay than in a Hobart rental, where you can experience all the action of the local adventure sports near your holiday home.
Thrills on the High Seas
Hobart is a harbor city, and to see it in all its glory hit the calm seas in a kayak with professional guides at your side. Paddle in small guided groups around the stunning harbor with the impressive Mount Wellington soaring high above as you head along the shoreline of Battery Point to Salamanca and The Docks. Do not miss out on floating fish and chips from one of Hobart's famous fish punts and enjoy your meal in the comfort of your kayak.
Staying on the water, you can catch another thrilling and exciting sport with the Franklin River Rafting adventure. This challenging activity takes you into the heart of Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area and consists of a day's walk to Frenchman's Cap followed by rafting through a spectacular gorge that can be calm one minute and send your heart into overdrive the next on the unpredictable Franklin River. Experienced guides are with you all the way.
Walk on the Wild Side
Hikers and trekkers are spoiled for choice with travel operators offering a huge selection of guided tours into the hills and mountains around Hobart and to the islands just off Tasmania. One such favorite tour is a ferry trip to nearby Bruny Island, where you can learn about the rich history of Hobart and Tasmania, the eco friendly systems that are now being utilized to protect the environment and you can hike or trek until you collapse in the lush, green countryside of Bruny Island.
Tailored Adventure Tours to Suit
Individual preferences are catered for and in Hobart you can find organized and guided tours for horse riding, mountain biking, safaris to remote parts of the island and the scary sounding but safe Tahune Airwalk and Hang Glide.
