Hobart

— 4 nights

Tasmania's Capital City

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.
Step out of Hobart with an excursion to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton--about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, see the interesting displays at Mawson's Hut Replica Museum, get curious at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and make a trip to Cascades Female Factory Historic Site.

Plan my Hobart trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
