The best scenery in Hobart is definitely not Mount Wellington or Nelson Lookout, but the Grand Chancellor Hotel, which has a beautiful view of the entire harbor and bay. The first time I stayed at the luxury hotel recommended by @LonelyPlanet, I was amazed by the scenery. Outside the huge French windows in the room, the ferry harbour was always changing. The red ship in the distance is the icebreaker that has just returned from Antarctica. This is the closest harbour to Antarctica.
