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 out of town with these interesting Hobart side-trips: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur (Port Arthur Historic Site & Three Capes Track). On the 16th (Wed), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, take in the views from Richmond Bridge, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, and engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

In January in Hobart, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 14°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.

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.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Wed): take in the dramatic scenery at Lilydale Falls, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and then identify plant and animal life at Cataract Gorge Reserve. Keep things going the next day: meet the residents at Seahorse World, get engrossed in the history at Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre, then explore the world behind art at Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, and finally stroll through City Park.
