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.
Get out of town with these interesting Hobart side-trips: Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton) and Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur). Next up on the itinerary: admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Wellington, and get curious at Pooseum.

Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can catch the flight back home.
