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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Port Arthur Historic Site and Mona. Step out of the city life by going to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Long Beach. There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Salamanca Market, contemplate the long history of Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, head off the coast to Macquarie Island, and stop by Hammer and Hand Metal Gallery.

You can plan Hobart trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Sydney to Hobart is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus; or do a combination of bus and ferry. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Sydney in March, with highs in Hobart at 25°C and lows at 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Launceston.
