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.
Change things up with a short trip to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Brighton (about 30 minutes away). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), take a leisurely stroll along Constitution Dock, take in the views from Richmond Bridge, and shop like a local with Salamanca Market.

Singapore, Singapore to Hobart is an approximately 13.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of bus, shuttle, and flight. Traveling from Singapore to Hobart, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Singapore in December, plan for little chillier days in Hobart, with highs around 24°C, while nights are much colder with lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Port Arthur.
