Hobart Sandy Bay
Sandy Bay Road, Hobart, Australia
The best way to explore Sandy Bay is on foot. Wander around the harbor, lined with fishing boats and private yachts; browse the cluster of shops and cafés along Kings Street and Sandy Bay Road; or stroll the waterfront boardwalk between the small riverside beaches. For the most impressive views, hire a yacht or join a boat cruise and admire the shores of Sandy Bay from the water. At night, the Wrest Point Casino, perched on the coast, is the place to be seen—the historic hotel was Tasmania’s first casino.
Chukka ATV Safari With Access Pass To Ocean Outpost Park, Montego Bay
$135.00 per adult
Don't book through Viator
I gave a five star for the experience and the staff/guides who actually worked at chukka, but I will NEVER book any experience through Viator again. This was a first time for me and definitely the last. My advise is to book through the locals once you arrive. I spent over 4k for my group on 3 days of excursions, and viator messed up my reservations/pick up times resulting in some of my guest not being able to participate in an excursion already paid for. I reached out MULTIPLE times to viator with no response. Very disappointed in Viator.😡

Things to know before you go
*Foodies won’t want to miss the Hobart Twilight Markets, held each Friday from October through March at Long Beach, Sandy Bay. *Bring your swimsuit and a picnic—swimming is possible at Long Beach and other beaches in the summer months, and locals often gather for a picnic or BBQ on the beach. *The district offers easy access for wheelchairs and strollers, and the riverside boardwalks from Little Sandy Bay to Long Beach are also accessible.
How to get there
Sandy Bay is located just south of Battery Point, two miles (three kilometers) from downtown Hobart or an about 10-minute drive or taxi ride. It’s an easy 5-minute walk from Battery Point and numerous buses stop along Sandy Bay Road, which runs through the neighborhood.
When to get there
The district is liveliest on the weekends, especially in the summer, when everyone seems to head to the beach. Head there in the day to walk along the coast or in evening for a quiet dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants.
