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.
Step out of Hobart with an excursion to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton--about 30 minutes away. On the 7th (Sat), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. The adventure continues: examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), let the kids burn off some steam at St. David's Park, sample the tasty concoctions at Cascade Brewery, and steep yourself in history at Hobart Convict Penitentiary.

For where to stay, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Hobart attractions planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Hobart. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in November, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can go by car to Strahan.
