Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Shene Tasmania (in Pontville) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Claremont House, examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art, view the masterpieces at Henry Jones Design Gallery, and do a tasting at Puddleduck Vineyard.
