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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like The Neck and Russell Falls. Museum-lovers will appreciate Richmond Gaol and Museum of Old and New Art (Mona). Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton), Cape Bruny Lighthouse (in Bruny Island) and Raptor Refuge (in Kettering). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Seven Mile Beach, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, and take a leisurely stroll along Constitution Dock.
