Restaurants, shops, parks and Nutgrove and Long Beach are a short walks away. We live in the adjoining house and are happy to share our in depth knowledge of Hobart's cultural attractions, restaurants and wineries. We enjoy attending the MONA, art galleries, museums, theatre performances at the historic Theatre Royal and Tasmanian Symphony concerts.Classical concerts in churches and rock/jazz groups perform in many pubs around Hobart. Hobart has both bush and spectacular coastal walks in every direction. More

About the neighbourhood
Local attractions within walking distance of Sonningview are Long Beach, Nutgrove park, and historic Alexandra Battery. Spectacular views of Mt Nelson and Mt Wellington pinnacles and both can be reached by car less than 10km away. We are a convenient base for day trips outside Hobart. Half day trips to wineries. Excellent restaurants, cafes and food outlets within a kilometre or two from the apartment.
Getting around
Buses travel past our property which take you to all parts of Hobart and south but of course if time is short your own car is the best option. Uber has come to Hobart. A ferry from Hunter St wharf takes you to MONA if you wish. For energetic travellers buses and walking are the main forms of transport if you choose not to bring a car. We can supply all the bus schedules. Bicycles are for hire downtown. Kayaks on Long Beach can be hired to explore the Derwent River.
