Start off your visit on the 8th (Tue): contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Trevallyn and then stroll through City Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: appreciate the views at The Tamar Valley, learn about winemaking at Holm Oak Vineyards, identify plant and animal life at Platypus House, then admire nature's wide array of creatures at Seahorse World, and finally admire the sheer force of Lilydale Falls.

Overlooking one of Tasmania's most scenic strips of coastline and serving as the gateway to Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay is home to just 500 permanent residents.
Step out of the city life by going to Spiky Beach Conservation Area and Denison Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Melshell Oysters and Gala Estate Vineyard. When in Coles Bay, make a side trip to see East Coast Natureworld in Bicheno, approximately 32 minutes away. The adventure continues: trek along Wineglass Bay Lookout, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and take in the waterfront at Coles Bay Jetty.

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.
On the 13th (Sun), look for all kinds of wild species at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, shop like a local with Rosny Farm, enjoy the sand and surf at Bellerive Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Nutgrove Beach, then kick back and relax at Opossum Bay Beach, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Kingston Beach. Keep things going the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Long Beach, admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, then stop by The Sensory Tasmania, and finally snap pictures at Richmond Bridge.
