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.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Wed): admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, then engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, then head off the coast to Macquarie Island, and finally take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington. Keep things going the next day: take in the views from Richmond Bridge, look for all kinds of wild species at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, then see the interesting displays at Museum of Old and New Art, and finally take a leisurely stroll along Constitution Dock.

To see maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Hobart road trip planning site .

Seattle, USA to Hobart is an approximately 26-hour combination of shuttle and flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle, flight, and bus. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Tasmania) (AEST), which is usually a 18 hour difference. When traveling from Seattle in February, plan for much hotter days and a bit warmer nights in Hobart: temperatures range from 72°F by day to 54°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Thu) so you can drive to Launceston.
