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.
Popular historic sites such as Cascade Brewery and Port Arthur Historic Site are in your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Mona and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Remarkable Cave (in Port Arthur) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). On the 1st (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and learn about winemaking at Puddleduck Vineyard.

Overlooking one of Tasmania's most scenic strips of coastline and serving as the gateway to Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay is home to just 500 permanent residents.
Start off your visit on the 4th (Thu): get interesting insight from Tours, enjoy the sea views from Cape Tourville Lighthouse, and then trek along Wineglass Bay Lookout. Here are some ideas for day two: make a trip to Bicheno Blowhole, learn about winemaking at Devil's Corner Cellar Door, then do a tasting at Gala Estate Vineyard, and finally contemplate the long history of Ross Female Factory.
