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.
When in Hobart, make a side trip to see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton, approximately Brighton away. The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market, and admire the local landmark of The Tasman Fountain.

For traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Hobart trip app.

Perth to Hobart is an approximately 7.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Perth to Hobart due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Perth in April, things will get little chillier in Hobart: highs are around 21°C and lows about 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to drive to Strahan.
