Attractions near the Fountainside Hotel
Lap up the waterfront
Take a stroll to Hobart’s famed Constitution Dock, the finishing line for the annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race. The jewel in Hobart’s crown, this picturesque pocket of the city is home to part of Tasmania’s fishing fleet and is one of the best deepwater ports in the world, attracting thousands of tourists every year.
Soak up the maritime atmosphere and enjoy a leisurely afternoon watching the boats come and go while chatting to the local fishermen. Feast on fresh Tasmanian produce at one of the great harbourside restaurants or roll out your picnic rug and indulge in locally caught fish and chips.
Culture and chocolate
Take the easy 10-minute drive from your hotel to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). A far cry from a dusty museum, MONA is a slick, modern and highly-acclaimed gallery that exhibits creative and exciting works from both prominent and up-and-coming artists. With a prime location on the banks of the Derwent River, MONA is a definite must-see.
From there, a further 10-minute drive will take you on a tasty trip back to your childhood – the famous Cadbury Factory in Claremont. Indulge your sweet tooth with chocolate tastings and learn the process of making Australia's best chocolate.
