Venture out of the city with trips to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton), Port Arthur (Three Capes Track & Port Arthur Historic Site) and Tahune Forest AirWalk (in Geeveston). On the 24th (Sun), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, head off the coast to Maria Island National Park, get a taste of the local shopping with Salamanca Market, and see the interesting displays at Mona.
