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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Salamanca Market and Aspect Design. Step out of the city life by going to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Mount Wellington. On the 11th (Thu), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, appreciate the extensive heritage of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St Joseph's Catholic Church.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Hobart tour itinerary planner.

Perth to Hobart is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Perth to Hobart due to the time zone difference.
