The inner city flanks the harbour, Sullivan's Cove, while its suburbs spread north and south along the shores of the Derwent River , east to the magnificent ocean beaches at Cremorne, Lauderdale and Clifton , and west to the dolomite cliffs of Mount Wellington .
Established in 1803, Hobart prospered as a trading port. The affluence of the 19th century is still evident in the number of historic buildings in Hobart 's central business district, with most of the city's public institutions still housed in superb examples of colonial and Georgian architecture. Primarily a maritime city with a busy working waterfront right in the heart of its CBD, Hobart 's port plays host to cruise ships, cargo vessels, icebreakers, sailing boats and the yachts in the Sydney-to-Hobart Yacht Race. Hobart has a vibrant arts community with many festivals.
