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.
Go for a jaunt from Hobart to Brighton to see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, get to know the fascinating history of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market.

To find more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the Hobart online holiday planner.

Sydney to Hobart is an approximately 4.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus; or do a combination of bus and ferry. Traveling from Sydney in March, things will get little chillier in Hobart: highs are around 25°C and lows about 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Coles Bay.
