Southern Wine Route


About Southern Wine Route

Hobart is a city of spinnakers, sandstone and sunshine - a place that combines a rich colonial past with contemporary art and culture; a place that has all the attractions of a state capital, wrapped up in a friendly, accessible, people-sized city. Hobart is a blend of charm and elegance, of heritage and sophistication, of spirit and style. The southern wine-growing areas surrounding Hobart are rich with a variety of landscapes and experiences. Ranging from architect-designed, ultra-modern restaurants to quaint heritage-listed cottages, these local cellar doors are well worth the visit. From the Tasman Bridge, you're just a few minutes from the start of the Coal River Valley wine-growing area and Richmond historical village. Heading south to the rich fruit-growing region of the Huon Valley and bountiful Channel Region you can sample the vintages at Australia's southernmost vineyards. Or wind your way northwest to the highlands, following the Derwent River to its source, calling into the Derwent Valley's cellar doors on your way to catching a trout. No matter the direction, Hobart is the perfect base to venture out to experience all the attractions in the southern wine route.
