Launceston

— 1 day

The Heart of Tasmania

Lying in the Tamar Valley and surrounded by forested hills, the grid-patterned city of Launceston boasts shaded avenues, vibrant street life, and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
On the 4th (Sun), identify plant and animal life at Cataract Gorge Reserve, then appreciate the views at The Tamar Valley, and then stroll around City Park.

For more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Launceston road trip planning website.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Launceston is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Launceston. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in August, things will get much colder in Launceston: highs are around 13°C and lows about 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) so you can go by car to Hobart.

Hobart

— 3 nights

Tasmania's Capital City

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.
On the 5th (Mon), identify plant and animal life at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, then admire the masterpieces at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), and then get to know the fascinating history of Battery Point Sculpture Trail. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, then engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and finally head off the coast to Macquarie Island.

To find traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Hobart trip itinerary planning site.
