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 Coal Mines Historic Site and St. David's Cathedral. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cape Raoul and Claremont House. Venture out of the city with trips to Tahune Forest AirWalk (in Geeveston), Willie Smiths Organic Apple Cider (in Huonville) and Port Arthur (Port Arthur Historic Site, Shipstern Bluff, & more). Spend the 1st (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 13th (Sun) exploring nature at Hartz Mountains National Park. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, go for a walk through Battery Point Sculpture Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and take a peaceful walk through Franklin River Nature Trail.
