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.
When in Hobart, make a side trip to see Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton, approximately 30 minutes away. On the 24th (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, see the interesting displays at Mona, appreciate the extensive heritage of Battery Point Sculpture Trail, and shop like a local with Salamanca Market.
