About the area - Mantra Collins Hotel

Tasmania has been named Best in Travel for 2015 by Lonely Planet, and it’s no surprise with its intriguing colonial heritage, breathtaking scenery, and superb gastronomy.

Positioned harbour-side in the heart of the Tasmanian capital, Mantra Collins Hotel in Hobart offers the perfect launch pad for your holiday in Australia’s most southern city. This accommodation is located within walking distance of Theatre Royal, Constitution Dock, Salamanca Place and the famous Salamanca Market, and the Botanical Gardens, and is close to many of the city’s other great sites.

You’ll be transported to a completely different time and place, from discovering the untouched Tasmanian wilderness at Mt Wellington or Mount Field National Park, to the exploring the shops that are housed within the Georgian warehouses of Salamanca Place, and soaking in the heritage at the Richmond Village. 

From your Hobart accommodation at Mantra Collins Hotel you can stroll down to the waterfront where there are a number of diverse dining experiences to choose from. If you’d like to try your hand at cooking with some of the local ingredients, you can purchase fresh seafood from fishmongers and produce from the markets. 

Learn about the history of Hobart at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, or head to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) by ferry. 

If Tasmania’s marine life and amazing food is on your agenda, Bruny Island is the ideal place to visit, with tours operating daily. For those with a love of wine, Derwent Valley has some vineyards and wine trails that can’t be ignored while you’re in the southern state.
