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.
Explore Hobart's surroundings by going to Port Arthur (Port Arthur Historic Site & Three Capes Track) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). On the 23rd (Sun), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, shop like a local with Salamanca Market, and take in the waterfront at Constitution Dock.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Hobart vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
