Kettering is within easy reach of a diverse collection of Hobart’s well-known sights. Two sights that should top every visitor’s list is the fabulous Kettering Ferry Terminal and the iconic Bruny Island Ferry Terminal. Also, be sure to check out Organ Pipes and Mt. Wellington.
Kettering has a number of museums, exhibits and show venues nearby that make great places to visit. Spend a few hours of admiring the exhibits at the Maritime Museum of Tasmania. Book tickets for a couple of the spectacular live shows at the Playhouse Theatre.
If you love nature and wildlife, go and check out some of the nearby green spaces. These are great places to relax and unwind. Enjoy listening to the birds, play catch with the kids and catch some rays at nearby Kents Beach in Dover and the Esperance Bay Park.
Nearby North Hobart Oval is the perfect place to hang out with lovers of Australia rules football (AFL), and to see local legends, the North Hobart Demons, in action. On game days follow the sea of red and blue, to the stadium, then after the full-time hooter blows, join fans at a nearby pub, bar or cafe and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
Finding somewhere suitable to rest your head in the Kettering area is simple. The Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, the Travelodge Hotel Hobart and the Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel are just three of the best places to stay while you are enjoying this special area.
