Recent forecasts estimate Hobart Airport’s yearly passenger count to reach three million by 2022, exceeding initial figures and demonstrating a boom in Tasmanian tourism. We are now experiencing an unprecedented surge in the capital’s hotel market, as international developers turn in favour to the isolated state, instead of seeking out opportunities on the mainland. Previously considered one of the slowest Australian markets, Hobart now sits as Australia’s third-best performing CBD hotel market, behind Sydney and Melbourne.1
With the local economy booming, business travel to the region is increasing from both domestic and international fronts. Construction for new luxury accommodation is underway, while Hobart’s Parliament Square business centre is also experiencing a $150 million facelift2.
