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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum of Old and New Art and North Hobart. Step out of the city life by going to Maria Island National Park and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Puddleduck Vineyard, take a stroll through Sullivans Cove, and stop by The Wicked Cheese Co..
