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.
Step out of the city life by going to Mount Wellington and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Do some cultural sightseeing at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site and Battery Point Sculpture Trail. Take a break from Hobart with a short trip to Raptor Refuge in Kettering, about 40 minutes away. On the 6th (Thu), spend an adventurous day with a kayaking and canoeing tour. On the 7th (Fri), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's much more to do: engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, buy something for everyone on your list at Cat and Fiddle Arcade, and examine the collection at Mawson's Hut Replica Museum.
