Working and Living in the Region
The City of Hobart is a local government area of Tasmania, Australia. It is one of five local government areas covering the metropolitan area of the state capital, Hobart but covers only a small section of the city's 200,000 population. With over 50,000 people, it is the third most populated council in Tasmania. The present municipal council was created in 1852 by act of parliament, and the city mayor raised to Lord Mayor in 1934.
Hobart offers a contrasting blend of heritage, scenery and culture, with world class activities and attractions nearby. Nestled amongst the foothills of Mt Wellington, Hobart combines heritage charm with a modern lifestyle in a setting of exceptional beauty. It's no wonder Lonely Planet has called Hobart one of the top ten spots to visit in the world right now.
Hobart has an extensive and varied collection of public art. From the city centre it's just a short walk between Franklin Square's monumental 19th century bronze statues of British Empire figures and the most cutting-edge contemporary work by students of the Tasmanian School of Art. Throughout the city, public artworks add interest, attraction and occasionally even controversy.
