    Without experience of having lived abroad, I thought it would be hard to get to know other expats. But not with InterNations.

Living in Hobart

Expats living in Hobart will quickly learn to enjoy the friendly, relaxed lifestyle of the capital city of Tasmania. It thrives through its rich maritime history, with the port as a central focus. The stunning location beside the Derwent River, gently watched over by Mount Wellington, is matched by a vibrant city where the local food – and especially the wines – are a source of much pride to Hobartians. As with mainland Australia, Hobart enjoys an outdoor-themed culture and offers a terrific, laid-back, family-friendly lifestyle. A wide range of sports are participated in and enjoyed and you’ll, for example, find state and international cricket played regularly at the Bellerive Oval. Networking or the chance to socialize with other InterNations members is a terrific way to meet both local people and fellow expatriates from around the globe. You’ll have the chance to make new friends, and find out more information about both Hobart and the surrounding stunning areas of Tasmania.

Moving to Hobart

The climate might take a little getting used to on relocation to Hobart. It is located south of the mainland (or, as local people call the rest of Australia - “North Island”) and its often fierce heat. This location tends to provide Hobart with truly pleasant summers and slightly cooler winters (snow is unusual, except on the higher slopes of Mount Wellington). However, it’s worth remembering that Hobart is a gateway port for the Antarctic, and the winds occasionally blow from that direction! One excellent advantage is the high hours of daylight during the summer. When moving to Hobart, or as a recent arrival, InterNations offers a wide range of ways for members to gain both general and local information. The Expat Magazine provides a terrific source of articles covering key areas such as insurance, finance, moving abroad and others. An added bonus is the many articles written by our members themselves, sharing their personal experiences of being an expatriate. You’ll also find a wealth of online discussion groups (over a thousand and counting) and numerous informative forums.

Working in Hobart

Unless you have been located to Hobart by diplomatic or international employers, or media, there are a wide range of employment possibilities waiting for expatriates in Hobart who are looking for jobs. Do note, however, that the proper visa is always required. Key industries in Hobart are based around shipbuilding (such as the production of high-speed catamarans) and breweries for both mass-market and premium or boutique beers. Over the last few decades, vineyards have thrived in the region and may provide further employment opportunities. As well as the financial, retail or electronics opportunities you would expect in any central business district of an Australian city, tourism also forms a major part of the local Hobart economy. Many opportunities exist from a range of tourist hot-spots like the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens to entertainment venues such as the Theatre Royal. You can add to this a wide range of hotels, restaurants, bars and cafés, plus a vibrant nightlife sector. And InterNations members, of course, always have the chance to network information on such key areas.

    When I first attended the Sydney Bar night I was really nervous. But everyone welcomed me and I quickly felt as part of the community.
