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.
Change things up with a short trip to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton (about 30 minutes away). There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, take in the views from Richmond Bridge, shop like a local with Salamanca Market, and see the interesting displays at Museum of Old and New Art.

To find more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Hobart route website .
