Hobart is the capital of Australia’s island state of Tasmania. Hobart lies on the River Derwent. Enjoy the city’s fashionable Salamanca Place, old sandstone warehouses host galleries and cafes. Hobart wheelchair access is quite good, despite a number of historical buildings constructed long ago (before modern standards). Nearby is Battery Point, a historic district with narrow lanes and colonial-era cottages. The city’s backdrop is 1,270m-high Mount Wellington, with sweeping views and hiking and cycling trails. Hobart wheelchair access is good with many options for disability travel.
