On the 3rd (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art, engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, contemplate the long history of Hobart Convict Penitentiary, and buy something for everyone on your list at Cat and Fiddle Arcade.
