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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like The Neck and Seven Mile Beach. Get outdoors at Russell Falls and Tessellated Pavement. It doesn't end there: explore the galleries of Richmond Gaol and learn about winemaking at Moorilla Estate Winery.

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

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 July, things will get a bit cooler in Hobart: highs are around 15°C and lows about 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) so you can drive to Coles Bay.
