Postcard from Hobart Harbour

September 15, 2011 in Australia,Places,Tasmania

The waterfront is one of the most gorgeous features of Hobart, the stretches of water reflecting either the clear blue skies or the intriguing cloud formations. Streteching along the city border, it’s filled with sailboats, yachts and fishing boats.ย Hobart yacht harbour, Tasmania, Australia on a sunny day


The harbour is impossible to miss while scoping out theย highlights of Hobart: the city centre hugs the waterfront. The MONA ferry leaves from the Brooke Street Pier, and Salamanca Market borders the harbour. Not a bad place to wander and daydream about sailing around the world in style…or simply sit on the dock and soak up the sunshine.ย Hobart Harbour on Derwent River in Tasmania, Australia in the morning

    The clouds are awesome, aren’t they? Unfortunately, they did mean a fair bit of rain while I was there!

  • GREAT photos. So often people forget the clouds and their reflection in the water. You’ve got a good eye.ย

    Thank you! Great clouds over water are one of my favorite things to photograph–luckily, there are lots of opportunities for it in Australia!
