Hobart

— 11 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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Cascades Female Factory Historic Site and Mawson's Hut Replica Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Battery Point Sculpture Trail and St John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church. Venture out of the city with trips to Shene Distillery (in Pontville) and Pressing Matters (in Richmond). On the 28th (Sun), give your taste buds a day to remember with a local gastronomic tour. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, steep yourself in history at Hobart Convict Penitentiary, sample the tasty concoctions at Cascade Brewery, and take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington.
