Hobart: City in Tasmania, Australia
Hobart is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. With a population of approximately 240,342, it is the least populated Australian state capital city, and second smallest if territories are taken into account. The city is located in the state's south-east on the estuary of the River Derwent, making it the most southern of Australia's capital cities. Its skyline is dominated by the 1,271-metre (4,170 ft) Mount Wellington, and its harbour forms the second-deepest natural port in the world, with much of the city's waterfront consisting of reclaimed land. The metropolitan area is often referred to as Greater Hobart, to differentiate it from the City of Hobart, one of the five local government areas that cover the city.
