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.
Explore Hobart's surroundings by going to Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (in Taranna), Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur (Three Capes Track & Port Arthur Historic Site). On the 18th (Tue), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, delve into the lush surroundings at Franklin River Nature Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market.

To see maps, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Hobart trip itinerary website .

There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Cataract Gorge Reserve, take in the exciting artwork at Design Centre Tasmania, admire the verdant scenery at The Tamar Valley, and take in the views from Alexandra Suspension Bridge.
