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 Lime Bay State Reserve and Nutgrove Beach for some beach relaxation. Cascade Brewery and Battery Point Sculpture Trail will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from Hobart with a short trip to Raptor Refuge in Kettering, about 40 minutes away. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, and get engrossed in the history at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
