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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Port Arthur Historic Site and Cascades Female Factory Historic Site. Mona and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from Hobart with a short trip to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton, about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, contemplate the long history of Battery Point, and browse the different shops at Cat and Fiddle Arcade.
