Hobart, Tasmania
The New Sydney: Australia's Artsy Cultural Mecca

The stunning new $80 million Museum of Old and New Art—with its collection of Damien Hirsts, Chris Ofilis, and Egyptian curiosities—recently put this Tasmanian paradise on the map. Now the Aussie jet set is arriving and checking into the Henry Jones Art Hotel. Salamanca Square is crowded with cool restaurants, like the salmon-tapas mecca Smolt. Down the road at Lark Distillery, there's a selection of Tasmanian whiskeys, while Squires Bounty is craft-beer heaven.
