Hobart

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (in Taranna), Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur). On the 6th (Sun), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, see the interesting displays at Mawson's Hut Replica Museum, gain some tasty knowledge on Drink Tasmania Premium Tours, and sample the tasty concoctions at Cascade Brewery.
