Event Details

The Royal Hobart Regatta is an annual Regatta in Hobart to commemorate the discovery of Tasmania in 1642 by Abel Tasman. The first Regatta was under the patronage of Sir John Franklin - Lieutenant Governor of Van Dieman’s Land on 19th November 1838 by the citizens of Hobart Town with racing between local merchants and trading vessel crews. Admission, food and beer were free.

The Royal Hobart Regatta today is the largest aquatic event in the Southern Hemisphere with 30,000 to 40,000 people over 3 days, and approximately 15,000 there for the fireworks on Monday evening, with many others watching the fireworks from vantage points around the river and from boats on the Derwent.

Our website is the best place for you to get an idea of the scope of the Regatta.

The Royal Hobart Regatta has its own public holiday on the Monday and is held over 3 days:

SaturdayKids and Family Day. Rowing, Kayaking and wooden dinghy racing and other great family activities.
