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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hobart: Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and head off the coast to Macquarie Island.

To find where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Hobart online trip itinerary maker .

In July, daily temperatures in Hobart can reach 15°C, while at night they dip to 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Launceston.
