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.
When in Hobart, make a side trip to see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton, approximately 30 minutes away. On the 8th (Fri), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, examine the collection at Mawson's Hut Replica Museum, shop like a local with Salamanca Market, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Battery Point Sculpture Trail.
