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.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Sat): shop like a local with Salamanca Market and then snap pictures at Tasman Bridge. Keep things going the next day: appreciate the extensive heritage of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, contemplate the long history of Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, then contemplate the long history of Hobart Convict Penitentiary, and finally head off the coast to Macquarie Island.
