Hobart 1987 photos

Tasmania, Australia

Australia facts & history in brief

Hobart is the capital and chief port of Tasmania, Australia, at the mouth of the Derwent River.
Population around 200.000.
It was founded as a penal colony in 1804, and named after Lord Hobart, Secretary of State for the Colonies.
Hobart became Tasmania's capital in 1812.
From a whaling station it developed into a major yachting, (Annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race), fishing, and trading port; exporting fruit, textiles, and processed food.
Has a number of interesting attractions.

The relaxed atmosphere of Hobart was a welcome change after the hurly-burly of the other major Australian cities.
Has a lot of resemblance to New Zealand.
I've enjoyed my stay.
