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.
Relax by the water at Seven Mile Beach and Bellerive Beach. Port Arthur Historic Site and Battery Point Sculpture Trail will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: South Cape Bay (in Southwest National Park), Tahune Forest AirWalk (in Geeveston) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Mona, kick back and relax at Kingston Beach, step off the mainland to explore Maria Island National Park, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington.

Planning Hobart trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Expect a daytime high around 24°C in December, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
