Hobart City Vision Project

Some footage from the Hobart Kids Forum




One of the most powerful ways to define a place—a city—is to tell its story. Stories are a great unifier, bringing the past, the present and the future together.

We’re looking to tell Hobart’s story through the thoughts, observations and participation of the wider Hobart community. Our story will help inform the decisions we make and the city we want to work, live and play in.

The overall project will lead to a vision for the city, which will guide Council's work into the future.

There are three big stages (you can read more about each in the Key Dates section):

  • Only in Hobart
  • City Forum
  • Community Panel

Right now, we're in the first stage, Only in Hobart, which involves talking to people from all around the city.

A team of interviewers, under the banner of The20, have spoken with more than 100 people with different relationships with Hobart. They couldn’t talk to everyone, so it was really important that they heard from a group that truly represents our city, not just the people who have strong opinions and loud voices, or people who have an influential role. But people like you, and your friends, and your neighbours, and the people who work at your favourite café … in fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if someone you know was involved. It’s Hobart, after all!

Head to www.onlyinhobart.com.au to read about the themes they're hearing and add your comments.

Read our FAQs to learn more about how we found people to talk to and what the interviews were like.

This page is constantly being updated with new findings and ways to be involved, so please register to stay informed and updated about how you can participate.
