Hobart

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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Helicopter Tours and Cat and Fiddle Arcade. Step out of Hobart to go to Brighton and see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, which is approximately 30 minutes away. On the 14th (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, and take in the views from Richmond Bridge.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Hobart fast, fun, and easy.
