101 Must-Do's for Kiwis

Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race


About Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race

The Rolex Sydney to Hobart is a yacht race of 628 nautical miles that starts in Sydney Harbour and finishes in Hobart. Each December you can see the world's greatest yachts charging through Sydney Heads as they take part in the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Once through the Heads, they turn south and cast their fate to the might of the great Southern Ocean and the winds of the Roaring Forties. Days later, in Hobart, the excitement builds as news of the first boat to arrive comes through. You could be one of the hundreds who head to Constitution Dock to welcome the weary crews. Then it is celebration time in Hobart as the Taste of Tasmania Food Festival commences right next to where the yachts dock.
