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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Hobart: Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, head off the coast to Macquarie Island, steep yourself in history at Hobart Convict Penitentiary, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Bellerive Beach.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Hobart trip itinerary builder site .

Perth to Hobart is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of train, ferry, and bus.

Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) so you can go by car to Launceston.
