More Sports and Activities

Although most of Hobart and its surrounding areas are too hilly to make for easy cycling, some old railway lines along the western bank of the Derwent River (which are quite flat) have been transformed into bicycle paths. These offer a relaxing way to explore parts of the city. Electric bikes can be rented from the Henry Jones Art Hotel on Hunter Street.

Derwent Bike Hire. This is a reliable outfitter for renting bikes, which provide a fun way to get around the city, particularly via the old railway lines along the western bank of the Derwent River.
