On the 26th (Sat), examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art, then look for all kinds of wild species at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, and then contemplate the long history of Shene Tasmania. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, then engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and finally head off the coast to Macquarie Island.
