Hobart is the capital and largest city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. Hobart is Australia’s second oldest capital city after Sydney. The modern history of Hobart dates to its foundation as a British colony in 1804. Prior to British settlement, the area had been occupied over 35,000 years ago, by the descendants of the indigenous Tasmanians.
