Victoria Dock, Franklin Wharf

Victoria dock, pictured here, is part of the  Franklin Wharf area in Hobart, Tasmania. Both a working waterfront and tourist attraction, the area is famous for fresh seafood served by the many restaurants, cafes and floating carry out establishments located in the area. By day, the wharf is awash with pedestrians often looking for an eatery with available seating.

Every two years Franklin Wharf is the site of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, the largest gathering of historic craft in the Southern Hemisphere. The Sydney and Melbourne to Hobart yachts dock nearby each New Year after crossing the finish line of this long ocean race.
The Sullivans Cove Waterfront Authority and Tasports work together to manage Franklin Wharf as a working port and as an important public space.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
