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.
Get outdoors at Russell Falls and Raptor Refuge. Museum-lovers will appreciate Richmond Gaol and Maritime Museum of Tasmania. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hobart: The Neck (in Bruny Island), Willie Smiths Organic Apple Cider (in Huonville) and Horseshoe Falls (in Mount Field National Park). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of St. David's Cathedral, wander the streets of North Hobart, stop by The Wicked Cheese Co., and do a tasting at Moorilla Estate Winery.

The Heart of Tasmania

Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Venture out of the city with trips to Mole Creek (Mole Creek Caves & Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary) and Goaty Hill Wines (in Kayena). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, get interesting insight from Tours, do a tasting at Tamar Ridge Cellar Door, and snap pictures at Alexandra Suspension Bridge.
