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.
On the 10th (Wed), look for all kinds of wild species at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, examine the collection at Mona, then enjoy the sand and surf at Bellerive Beach, and finally take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington.

Plan my trip to Hobart with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Sydney to Hobart is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus; or do a combination of bus and ferry. Traveling from Sydney in October, things will get little chillier in Hobart: highs are around 20°C and lows about 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to drive to Coles Bay.
