Hobart is a compact friendly city that's fairly easy to navigate by road. While there are some steep narrow streets and frustrating one-way roads, most of the city is relaxed and easy to get around. Local speed limits are the same as the rest of Australia, from 50 km/h in residential areas to 100 km/h on most highways. Parking in the CBD is fairly easy, although it's probably a good idea to avoid Salamanca Place on a Friday night. If you've purchased 4WD hire in Hobart, there are some great tracks to explore on the outskirts of the city.
