So much of what makes Hobart one of the world’s best small cities revolves around its magnificent waterfront.
Whether it’s a walk along the historic Salamanca waterfront, the quirkiness of the MONA ferry, or a simple picnic on the sprawling lawns of the riverside Tasmanian Royal Botanical Gardens, this gorgeous harbour is at the heart of a Hobart holiday.
You could go with the masses and find yourself a pokey, expensive apartment in the middle of the CBD – but you know what I would prefer? A relaxing couples getaway at Oceana B&B on Hobart’s sunny eastern shore!
It is the views of the sparkling River Derwent that first catch your eye as you leave the hustle and bustle of the CBD behind, and then as you rise above the rooftops the panorama of Mt Wellington/kunanyi is revealed in all its glory!
I recently visited your lovely hosts at Oceana B&B – Michael and Di – and with huge snowfalls in recent weeks it reminded me just how pretty a snow-capped Mt Wellington can be, especially at sunset where rays of light stream across the foothills in a pastel palette that is so unique to Tasmania.
It also opened my eyes to how the little things can make all the difference in a quality B&B these days.
Can you remember the last time your music selection at a hotel or B&B was tailored to your own preferences – if ever?
How about easy access to an interactive display of tourism activities at your fingertips – together with the face-to-face tips and recommendations that only a local host can provide?
And just how many B&Bs can claim to provide a daily-changing Continental breakfast menu, prepared fresh and by hand, at your preferred time of the morning?
Such little touches, but they all show just how much Michael and Di care about their guests, and why they have so many ‘regulars’ now who keep coming back, time and time again to experience this wonderful hidden gem.

I hear some visitors ask the question “But if I stay on the eastern shore, am I going to be close enough to all the attractions of Hobart?“
This is where Hobart shines!
Unlike Sydney or Melbourne where you might take half an hour or more to get from one side of the city to the other, Hobart is so compact that you can be sitting back enjoying the sweeping views from Oceana B&B, and less than 15 minutes later find yourself amid the rich history and golden sandstone walls of the Salamanca waterfront.
It is the perfect way to guarantee a quiet, relaxing night’s sleep, while also providing you with the unique opportunity to live like a local.
3 wonderful nights of being pampered and treated like royalty – if you are looking for the same experience then this is the place for you!
From the moment you arrive your hosts, Michael and Di, treat you like friends. The room was spotless and contained everything we could possibly need. The breakfasts delivered to our door each morning (at our specified time) were delicious, it was like dining at a fine restaurant and varied each day. We waited each morning in anticipation of what we were about to have delivered, and little treats of biscuits and chocolates were waiting outside our door each day when we arrived back.
We only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Michael and Di for this wonderful experience!
