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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museum of Old and New Art and Lady Franklin Gallery. Get some cultural insight at North Hobart and Cascades Female Factory Historic Site. Get out of town with these interesting Hobart side-trips: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Tahune Forest AirWalk (in Geeveston). Spend the 11th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

Plan my trip to Hobart with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Perth to Hobart is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus. The time zone difference moving from Australian Western Standard Time to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Tasmania) is 2 hours. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Perth in March, with highs in Hobart at 25°C and lows at 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Port Arthur.
