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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Seven Mile Beach and Fortescue Bay. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Salamanca Market and Salamanca Wool Shop. Get out of town with these interesting Hobart side-trips: Raspins Beach (in Orford), Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur) and Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton). The adventure continues: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Cascade Brewery, see the interesting displays at Museum of Old and New Art, do a tasting at Moorilla Estate Winery, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kingston Beach.
