Popular historic sites such as Cascade Brewery and Battery Point Sculpture Trail are in your itinerary. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cascades Female Factory Historic Site and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Change things up with a short trip to Nonesuch Distillery in Sorell (about 38 minutes away). On the 20th (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour.
