  2. Hi Year 3/4,
    Hobart truly is a beautiful city! I live in Sydney, but have been to Hobart as a young child. My scarce memories of it are all beautiful, I especially remember the Tasmanian Devils, such beautiful creatures! Well done for including such interesting information on your home. You have obviously worked hard in creating this page, so kudos to you!
