Things you may like to do in and around Hobart during your stay:

 

Hobart is a fabulous destination and a great place to bring the family or holiday with friends – so many places to see and explore – this is a great opportunity to take some extra time and see all that Tasmania has to offer.

 

Watch this short video of this stunning location

 

 

Visit Mount Wellington

 

 

Stroll through cool forested gullies along historic walking tracks or traverse Wellington Range in the saddle on horse or mountain bike. Four wheel drive along rough mountain trails, climb leaning dolerite towers, or sit quietly among the birds. Find the perfect place for a picnic or to flip a burger.

 

Experience Bruny Island

 

 

Bruny Island has some of Tasmania's most beautifully preserved natural environments with abundant wildlife and stunning cliff top views. The island is about 50 km long but appears to be two islands with North and South Bruny joined by a narrow strip of land called The Neck. This isthmus is an important habitat for native wildlife.

 

Encounter Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair

 

 

Lake St Clair is at the southern end of the world famous Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park and is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The Aboriginal people of the area called the lake Leeawuleena, meaning sleeping water.  The area around Lake St Clair offers a wealth of walks, ranging from leisurely 45 minutes strolls to overnight bushwalks, as well as beautiful forests to explore. 

 

Enjoy the Salamanca Markets

 

 

Set among the historic Georgian sandstone buildings of Salamanca Place in Hobart, this famous market attracts thousands of locals and visitors every Saturday of the year. Salamanca Market is one of those special places where you actually meet the people who create, make or grow what they sell. The nearly 300 stallholders include makers of hand-made Tasmanian pieces from woodwork to jewellery, fashion to fanciful glassware and ceramics. Of course, there are also fantastic fresh fruit and organic vegetables, all accompanied by buskers and music.

 

Visit Picturesque Huonville

 

 

Huonville sits on the banks of the tranquil Huon River and is surrounded by fruit orchards, farmland and the peaks of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The town makes an ideal base for exploring Tasmania's far south. For those who enjoy fine produce, the surrounding area produces smoked and fresh salmon, honey, mushrooms, apples, apricots, plums, cherries, pears, wines, and cider– a veritable foodie's paradise. The Apple Shed Museum, Ciderhouse and Cafe is dedicated to the Huon Valley's famous apple growing story.
