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.
Visit Seven Mile Beach and Long Beach for some beach relaxation. Port Arthur Historic Site and Mona will appeal to museum buffs. Go for a jaunt from Hobart to Brighton to see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market, go for a walk through Battery Point Sculpture Trail, stop by Hammer and Hand Metal Gallery, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Hobart trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
