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.
Head to Salamanca Market and The Wicked Cheese Co.for some retail therapy. Get some historical perspective at Cascade Brewery and Hobart Convict Penitentiary. Venture out of the city with trips to Pressing Matters (in Richmond) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). On the 3rd (Thu), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site, get to know the fascinating history of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
