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 Seven Mile Beach and Long Beach. Get in touch with nature at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Maria Island National Park. Explore Hobart's surroundings by going to Tahune Forest AirWalk (in Geeveston), Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (in Taranna) and Port Arthur (Three Capes Track & Port Arthur Historic Site). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Bellerive Beach, see the interesting displays at Mona, take in the pleasant sights at Battery Point Sculpture Trail, and stroll through Hinsby Beach.

To see reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Hobart online tour planner .

Expect a daytime high around 20°C in October, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

Overlooking one of Tasmania's most scenic strips of coastline and serving as the gateway to Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay is home to just 500 permanent residents.
Kick off your visit on the 14th (Sun): look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, contemplate the waterfront views at Coles Bay, and then walk along Wineglass Bay Lookout. Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at East Coast Natureworld, then experience rural life at Freycinet Marine Farm, and then visit a coastal fixture at Cape Tourville Lighthouse.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, use the Coles Bay trip itinerary planner .

Traveling by car from Hobart to Coles Bay takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and taxi. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Tue) to allow time for the car ride back home.
