No place embraces the Australian laidback lifestyle quite like our southernmost state, Tasmania. Its capital city, Hobart is a destination of exploration and discovery. It’s the kind of place you instantly feel you need to return to, because once you’re there you realize how much more there is to uncover. The town itself is surrounded by beautiful scenery and filled with immense culture and fresh produce. From boutique shopping to daring art, today we share some of our favorite Hobart experiences.
Carefully curated by designer Lucy Given, LUC. Design is the go-to store for well-designed products. With its range of exquisite homewares, furniture, art and fashion, we highly recommend leaving extra room in your suitcase.

The Pollen Tea Room
We called upon Hobart based Photographer, Madeleine Becker for some inside knowledge on where local creatives like herself like to eat. Located in the heart of Battery Point, The Pollen Tea Room serves a wide range of organic tea and a small but delicious menu. Tip: seating is quite limited so we suggest getting there early.

A must-visit. Mona is known for its confrontational and controversial artworks. The galleries of Mona are filled with engaging installations, performance art and ancient ceramics. The restaurants and bars are artworks in themselves and are all part of the unique Mona experience.
