The metropolitan area stretches north and south along the Derwent River, crossed by several bridges. Notable for being one of the coldest Australian cities, it has a mild temperate oceanic climate, with four distinct seasons.Hobart city centre is 20 km from Hobart International Airport (HBA) at Cambridge. The following airlines fly to HBA:A shuttle bus operated by Skybus runs between the airport and Brooke Street Pier, stopping at Franklin Square and Macquarie Street on its way. The airport shuttle costs $18.50 one way for an adult or $36 return and takes approximately 25 minutes, departing between 4:30am and 9:30pm 7 days a week.A taxi will cost between $40-50 into the city centre from the airport, or alternatively request a rideshare service which will be slightly cheaper.

Cruise ships usually dock at Macquarie Wharf, which is on the eastern side of the picturesque city docks area on Hunter Street. Redeveloped in 2013, Macquarie Wharf 2 is now a modern and welcoming space for tourists arriving by boat, with the terminal around a ten minute walk from Hobart’s CBD.
