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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Hobart: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur). On the 16th (Tue), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, step off the mainland to explore Macquarie Island, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington.
