Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Woodbridge Art and Craft Gallery (in Woodbridge) and South Cape Bay (in Southwest National Park). And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Salamanca Market, enjoy the sand and surf at Kingston Beach, stroll through Bellerive Beach, and sample the tasty concoctions at Cascade Brewery.
