If you wake in your hotel room in Hobart on the 26th December you may think it is basking in the surprise of a delight that is Christmas. But not for long as the retail stores open for the post Christmas Boxing day sales. Rush, rush as the crowds find a bargain. Hobart has many shopping areas with arcades and malls with lanes a specialty.
Another side of Hobart on Boxing day is down at the docks where everyone is watching what is going on in Sydney for the start of the televised Sydney to Hobart yacht race. As well as that race there is also the lesser known Melbourne to Hobart yacht race. Down at the Hobart docks preparations are well advanced for the arrival of whole lot of yachts and new visitors over the next bunch of days. If you are into seafaring then that will be the place to be.
