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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur). On the 23rd (Fri), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, contemplate the long history of Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, shop like a local with Salamanca Market, and take some stellar pictures from Mount Nelson Lookout.

Start your trip to Hobart by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

You can drive from Launceston to Hobart in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in February, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
