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.
Port Arthur Historic Site and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery will appeal to museum buffs. You'll get in some beach time at Seven Mile Beach and Kingston Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton), Lime Bay State Reserve (in Port Arthur) and South Cape Bay (in Southwest National Park). On the 29th (Fri), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art, take a leisurely stroll along Constitution Dock, contemplate the long history of Hobart Convict Penitentiary, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington.

Expect a daytime high around 22°C in November, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
