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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Raptor Refuge. We've included these beaches for you: Long Beach and Nutgrove Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Shene Tasmania in Pontville (about 42 minutes away). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. David's Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, grab your bike and head to The Pipeline Track, and take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
