  • Very interesting history. The staff were very informative. Inspired me I hope to win the trip by plane monthly draw.
  • Very good replica of Mawson's Hut, carefully filled with replicas of items from the time of the expedition. Knowledgeable staff in attendance.
  • Felt like I was really there. (Well, not really but the howling wind sound effect made me feel chilly!) Allow an hour to read the personal life descriptions of those intrepid explorers and how things worked out for them The inner area is full of artefacts and very knowledgeable volunteer staff.
  • Excellent place to learn the history of Australian explorers. Tour guides knowledge and helpful
  • Ok but possibly not worth the $12 admission. Staff very knowledgeable

Where to stay in Hobart

Hobart features a varied selection of budget and mid-range rooms located within striking distance of the central business district. You can choose from single rooms in small but comfortable hotels, or spacious suites with sweeping views of the Derwent River. If you want to avoid the central areas, look for rooms in North Hobart, where you can stay moments away from some of the city's finest restaurants. Throughout the city, backpacker hostels and pubs with rooms for rent provide another affordable alternative for those traveling on a shoestring.
