About the book (from back cover)
The City of Hobart is often referred to as one of the most beautiful and liveable cities in the world. Lonely Planet recently listed Hobart as one of the Top 10 Cities in the World to visit.
The second oldest city in Australia, Hobart offers a wonderful blend of heritage, scenery and culture. Many of Hobart’s earliest buildings are well preserved. Georgian, Regency, Gothic, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco styles are all well represented within the city. The stunning Murray and Macquarie streets corner has a significant sandstone building on each corner and is considered an architectural jewel in Australia’s crown.
Passionate historian and author Warren Glover, a history tour guide, and photographer Paul County, both sixth and fifth generation Hobartians with a wealth of local knowledge, have selected 73 of Hobart’s iconic buildings or locations.
Each has been beautifully photographed and the author has revealed interesting aspects of their creation and history.
There are many ‘Did You Know?’ stories throughout the book, which give further, often humorous, insights into Hobart’s colourful history.
The beautifully designed Discovering Hobart is a valuable guide for visitors
and locals. It’s laid out street-by-street so you can, if you wish, put on your
walking shoes, mingle with the locals and see the iconic buildings up close.
