Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Wed): take in the exciting artwork at Design Centre Tasmania and then tour the pleasant surroundings at City Park. Here are some ideas for day two: look for all kinds of wild species at Cataract Gorge Reserve and then appreciate the views at The Tamar Valley.

To find ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Launceston trip itinerary planning app .

Sydney to Launceston is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of train, ferry, and bus.

Hobart

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.
Go for a jaunt from Hobart to Brighton to see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary about 30 minutes away. On the 30th (Sun), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, take in the waterfront at Constitution Dock, snap pictures at Richmond Bridge, and see the interesting displays at Mawson's Hut Replica Museum.

Plan my Hobart trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Port Arthur to Hobart takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In December, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
