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.
Take a break from Hobart with a short trip to Port Arthur Historic Site in Port Arthur, about 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, get to know the fascinating history of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, and get curious at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

To find other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Hobart travel route builder app .

Vancouver, Canada to Hobart is an approximately 20-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of shuttle and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Vancouver to Hobart is 18 hours. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Vancouver in March, with highs in Hobart at 25°C and lows at 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Launceston.
