Here are a few pictures from our walk around Hobart.  The city was founded in 1803 as a penal colony.  This makes Hobart the second-oldest city in Australia.  Hobart was founded after the British became worried about French explorers in the area.  The city is founded at the mouth of the Derwent river, giving Hobart an excellent natural harbor.
