While touring in Hobart, we really enjoyed our visit to Sandy Bay and the rest of the wharf area. Power boats, sailing vessels and larger ships -- all anchored in this area -- provide a picture-perfect setting for water lovers and photographers too.

Lovely local park with toilet facilities. We commenced our kayak here with Roaring 40s. We've returned to the park and walked along the beautiful waterfront each morning

We did it on foot and took an hour or so to have a good look. Nice scenery, lots of boats to look at and wish for and some nice cafes to partake of coffee as well.

Some great restaurants along here, slightly overpriced and could do with a bit more variety, but still a nice place.

Delightful suburb, with plenty of eateries, shops and river walks. Plenty of accommodation and good bus service into the city.
