Step out of the city life by going to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Long Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Port Arthur Historic Site and Cascades Female Factory Historic Site. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), explore the world behind art at Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, and steep yourself in history at Hobart Convict Penitentiary.
