Getting Around

Hobart is a very compact city and walking is often the best way to get from one place to another.  The MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival site is a pedestrian zone, all the way from Salamanca Place to Hunter Street, taking in the whole of the Sullivans Cove waterfront. There’s parking nearby, but all cars are banned from the site after 9:00am to ensure pedestrian safety.

Metro runs an excellent bus system throughout Hobart and bus stops are conveniently near to the Festival site, visit for more info. There are several bike hire companies in town that can provide some two-wheeled freedom, with a dedicated bike park on-site at the Festival.  For best rates on car hire, click here to book with with our Official Festival Partner BUDGET CAR RENTAL, or call the Hobart office on (03) 6234 5222.

Take advantage of your visit to Hobart to explore further nearby – the beautiful D’Entrecasteaux Channel, Bruny Island, Tasman Peninsula and Derwent Valley are all not too far from the city and the stunning Southwest Wilderness starts at Mt. Field National Park, just over an hour’s drive away.
