Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent.
Relax by the water at Long Beach and Bellerive Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton), Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (in Taranna) and Port Arthur (Port Arthur Historic Site & Three Capes Track). Spend the 18th (Fri) exploring nature at Rocky Cape National Park. And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market.
