Hobart is a city of 220 thousand people. First impressions: quiet city centre, inconsistent architectural styles - that's typical for Australian cities, an imposing mountain, super clear water in the port, people in winter coats. A walking tour is a good way to start learning about Hobart.

Battery Point, lovely historical houses on a quiet hill in the city centre, originally for gunners, now worth about $700k each.

Grain silos converted to apartments, right next to Salamanca Market.

The Tasmanian Museum tells the tragic history of the aboriginal people of Tasmania. The author of the concept of genocide, Raphael Lemkin, considered Tasmania the site of one of the world's clear cases of genocide. The pure blood native population dropped from 3,000 - 10,000 in 1803 to 0 in 1876.

 North Hobart:

Love this mural on a veterinarian clinic.

Flying back to Brisbane, the view of Gold Coast.
