Hobart, largest city, chief port, and capital of Tasmania, Australia. Located in the southeastern corner of the state on the west bank of the River Derwent estuary (2 miles [3 km] wide), 12 miles (19 km) above its mouth, the city ranges along steep foothills with Mount Wellington (4,167 feet [1,270 metres]), often snow-covered, in the near background. Hobart is Australia’s most southerly city. The British navigator George Bass explored the estuary in 1798 and was much impressed with the setting. Five years later, Philip Gidley King, governor of New South Wales, in an attempt to prevent French incursions into districts not yet under direct British control, dispatched a lieutenant to establish a settlement at Risdon Cove on the Derwent. It was named Hobart Town after Robert Hobart, 4th earl of Buckinghamshire, then secretary of state for the colonies. In 1804 the settlement was moved to the city’s present site, Sullivans Cove. By the mid-19th century the community had become a major port for ships whaling in the southern oceans,
but its development was being arrested by the limited resources that the Tasmanian island offered in comparison with the mainland. It was gazetted an episcopal city in 1842, a municipality in 1852, and a secular city in 1857.
Hobart has an excellent deepwater port unhampered by tidal changes. That—coupled with rail lines (freight only) to the north and northwest, the junction of the Channel, Midland, Huon, and Tasman highways, and an airport—makes it a focus of communications and trade. Industry in the metropolitan area declined after the 1970s, but those remaining in the early 21st century included a zinc smelter on the Derwent and newsprint mills.
