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.
On the 8th (Fri), identify plant and animal life at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, then see the interesting displays at Mona, and then take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market, then look for gifts at Hammer and Hand Metal Gallery, then take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, and finally browse the different shops at Cat and Fiddle Arcade.
