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 Zoodoo Zoo in Richmond--about 34 minutes away. On the 5th (Mon), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, get curious at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, sample the tasty concoctions at Cascade Brewery, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington.
