A trip to Tasmania’s iconic Hobart Zoo will leave you with an appetite for adventure and an appetite to explore.
Hobart is the state capital of Western Australia and has a population of around 2 million, but this city has its own unique charms.
In the early days of the park, zoo guests would stay in a small tent, and after the sun went down, they would take to the skies to watch birds and butterflies.
The zoo was established in 1894 and has remained in its current form ever since, with over 2,000 animals including giraffes, birds, reptiles and even elephants.
Hobarts largest animal, the Giant Tree, has over 200 trees and over 400 species of plants.
The Tasmanian bush, including the famous Black Swamp and the wild forests, have also been used to film a number of films, such as The Great Gatsby and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
Hobas zoo is one of the few places on the planet where you can get a bird’s eye view of the surrounding landscape, as well as a good night’s sleep.
It is also a popular stopover for tourists.
Hobart Zoo is located in Hobart, Western Australia, and is accessible from Hobart.
You can see the zoo’s entrance from the town of Hobart or by walking or by public transport.

A popular attraction at Hobs zoo is the Giant Trees.
Hobs Giant Trees are a series of giant trees that grow to over 50 metres high and up to 1,500 metres across.
They were created in the 1800s by Charles Darwin.
The giant trees are a part of the Tasman’s natural heritage and have been a part for generations.

They are one the longest-lived natural heritage areas in Tasmania.
