About the region…
The island of Tasmania is situated about 240 kilometres south of Australia’s mainland. Its southern region abounds with stunning scenery, beautiful waterways, and captivating experiences sure to appeal to anyone looking for an adventure.
This region is home to the capital city of Hobart, located on the estuary of the Derwent River in the south-east. Hobart is internationally famous for being the finish line of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race which starts in Sydney on Boxing Day. The arrival of the yachts coincides with the Hobart Summer Festival, a food and wine festival beginning at the end of December and running through until mid-January. Hobart is also the finish point of the TARGA Tasmania rally car event which is held in April of each year.   
The south region has a mild, temperate climate with four distinct seasons. It also has diverse housing options, a range of modern sporting venues, excellent educational facilities including primary and secondary schools, and close proximity to the University of Tasmania. Most public transport within the city area is via an extensive network of public and private bus services. When travelling further throughout the southern region, motorists can explore coastal drives and interesting places including Georgian era towns and villages, historical convict sites, stunning national parks, and spectacular coastal scenery. For those seeking international travel, Hobart International Airport is easily accessible.
The southern region offers something for everyone. You could be hiking or mountain-biking world class trails, enjoying the thriving arts scene, sampling fresh local produce in one of the many divine restaurants or wandering through markets and local boutique shops. Alternatively, you may like to immerse yourself in a line-up of festivals, museums, galleries, live music and theatre, or simply unwind on a gorgeous beach. Whatever your interests, the south region is sure to deliver!
