Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

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.

Take a break from Hobart with a short trip to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton, about 30 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Kingston Beach, steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. David's Cathedral, and admire the landmark architecture of St John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church.
