Hobart, Tasmania, need Itinerary Help

by swdke

I am thinking of visiting Hobart, Tasmania, and have only 2 nights. Arrive 10:00 am on a Monday, and depart at 8 am two nights later on a Wednesday. I read that Tasmania is great to visit, but to be honest, I am not sure what to see and do. I am looking for a suggested itinerary, or what to do, where to go logistically, given the short time frame as as described above. Will be traveling in November. I look forward to your help. Thank you.

Hello and thank you for your reply. Actually, I do plan to rent a car. Sorry I didn't mention that. Thanks for your help.

Agree with previous poster about Port Arthur - it is well-worth a visit. The other day just explore the city (its small) and include the botanical gardens and battery point.

Another suggestion is the historic town of Richmond.

I'm sure there are coach companies that offer trips to all the above and if there is one that does both Richmond and Port Arthur in one day, that's the one I'd take.

It is a very beautiful yet small city and a pity that more "mainlanders" don't get there.

Sorry, should have added Mount Wellington for stunning views of the city and suburbs. Warning - even in November it can snow on that mountain and it gets VERY cold.

Thanks for the information. Looks like I definately need to visit Port Arthur. Given my short stay "Arrive 10:00 am on a Monday, and depart at 8 am two nights later on a Wednesday", and having a rental car, how would you suggest I fit all this in. I am not familiar with the distances, travel time, etc, and would appreciate how I can logistically fit it all in. I am one of those people who like to see and do it all, and even though my stay is short, I don't mind cramming in as much as possible, it's just the way I typically travel. Thanks.

If you like to cram in as much as possible, as soon as you arrive on the Monday drive straight to Port Arthur, you could easily spend a whole day there exploring, on the way back to Hobart, drive up to Mt Wellington, (depending on weather conditions), or drive up Mt Wellington early Tuesday morning, on Tuesday you could either go to Richmond or drive further north and go to Ross, a lovely little town, very historical, or drive south to Kettering and catch the ferry (you can take your car) to Bruny Island and spend the day on the Island, enjoy your stay.

I too recommend Port Arthur. The historic Penal Colony was eerily interesting. If you did this for a 1/2 day and would like to see a beautiful site, Freycinet Wine Glass Bay is a 200 km drive to the north beside Coles Bay. (a couple of hours drive) http://www.freycinetcolesbay.com/

You are certainly doing the right thing by giving at least a little time to Taz. It is certainly a beautiful island. I was fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks traveling on the island via Tasmanian Redline Coaches http://www.redlinecoaches.com.au/ and would have many other recommendations for you if your schedule was not so tight.

Travel Tips for Hobart

The falls run

by iandsmith

Waterfalls are often a popular destination for tourists and Tassie has its share of good ones. Not all that far away (about an hour) are the most popular of all, Russell. They are located in Mount Field National Park and it will cost your carload $22 to walk five minutes up the trail to view them.
However, there is a lot more to see at Mount Field. There's heaps of walks in rainorest, alpine and sub alpine vegetation and there's another two waterfalls, Lady Barron and Horseshoe. However, just down the road at Tyenna, there's another set of falls called Marriott and you can see them for nothing and, if you're into flowers, drop in a Newbury Gardens as well.
It involves a 30 minute walk along the pretty Tyenna River before you cut across a paddock and up through one of the finest fern forests you'll ever see.

Arthur Circus

by seamandrew

Arthur Circus was part of an original grant to the Reverend Robert Knopwood. This site was purchased by Governor Sir George Arthur in 1829. When he resold the land almost 20 years later, the auction advertisement described it as "delectable building sites in a neighborhood that will inevitably become the Resort of the Beau Monde". Well, that never happened, but Hobart is still quite a lovely little town and this little spot in located in the Battery Point part of Hobart is just as lovely.

Go Market Shopping

by aami80

The Salamanca Markets are only on Saturdays, and they close at about 3. We bought up a storm. We got 3 CD's for $20 (ex-jukebox so they were in perfect condition), the tastiest apricot jam I've ever tasted (actually tastiest jam I've ever tasted full stop), stunning roses, a black hearted sassafras mirror, some rasberry and chili beer (and yes it's alcoholic!), and more. This place was definitely worth a visit, lots of things that you wouldn't find many other places.

Salamanca Place & markets

by bijo69

Salamanca Place is probably the most touristy spot in Hobart. The row of colonial warehouse from the early days of the town now host restaurants, caf├ęs and galleries.
On Saturdays a large market is held here where can buy all kinds of local and non-local produce.

Tasmania Museum

by iandsmith

This beautiful sandstone museum down by Constitution Dock was established by The Royal Society of Tasmania. This is the oldest Royal Society outside England and was established by Sir John Franklin, the famous explorer.
If you are in Hobart and visiting museums is your go, give this place a whirl.

Opening hours :
10am-5pm daily except Good Friday, ANZAC Day (25th April) and Christmas Day (25th December)

General Admission is FREE.
Charges are made for some special exhibitions.
