Hobart in the distance

From the top of Mt Wellington, at 1271 meters, Australia’s second oldest capital (after Sydney) can be seen in the distance. Well, when the sky is clear and sunny. It began as a penal colony in the beginning of the 1800s as the king did not want to stay in the same land as convicts.An interesting fact about the port of Hobart is that from there the next stop is Antartica!
