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.
Bring the kids along to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Franklin River Nature Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (in Taranna), Pulpit Rock Lookout (in New Norfolk) and Port Arthur (Port Arthur Historic Site, Remarkable Cave, & more). Spend a day of island exploring on the 28th (Fri) at Maria Island National Park. Spend the 4th (Fri) exploring nature at Hartz Mountains National Park. There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, contemplate the long history of Hobart Convict Penitentiary, examine the collection at Mona, and take in the views from Richmond Bridge.
