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.
Attractions like Opossum Bay Beach and Seven Mile Beach make great kid-friendly stops. We've included these beaches for you: Kingston Beach and Roches Beach. Step out of Hobart with an excursion to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton--about 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market, take an in-depth tour of Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, stroll through Bellerive Beach, and take in the pleasant sights at Battery Point Sculpture Trail.
