How Brian sees Hobart - Our Heritage City
  • "Hobart is still a 'people' city, low-rise, lots of heritage, a great place to live, work, & enjoy life;
  • Hobart is a cultural city; exciting and stimulating;
  • the setting of river & mountain is exceptional, with easy access to both;
  • Hobart is visually beautiful - both city and suburbs;
  • Hobart is friendly, safe, and a great place to meet people;
  • not intimidating or overwhelming like big concrete/glass cities; and
  • you can be involved, changing and influencing what happens."
