A week ago my partner and i did the Bruny Wildlife Adventure with Hobart Cruises. It was awesome. The highlight was defiantly seeing seals both on the rocks and in the water under the boat. The boat had this underwater submarine thing with a camera on it … it was out of this world. The guide on the tour was both nice and informative. He gave us warm jackets (mine reached the floor!), beanies and even hand warmers. The skippers (you go on two different boats during the day) seemed very professional and knew the area very well. Both boats were All in all we were well looked after and had a great experience. Definitely a must when in Tassie!

The most famous thing in Hobart, dare I submit, is the Salamanca Markets. This not-to-be-missed event happens every Saturday and draws a crowd, rain, hail or shine; though it's fair to suggest that on a freezing winter morn there may be a few less than in spring!
Food and art are two of the things that you'll see lots of here and, with a backdrop of the harbour on one side and the lovely old restored warehouses on the other, it's a wonderful venue.

Macquarie is another and it runs parellel on the eastern side of Liverpool Street and is one of the main thoroughfares into the CBD.
It has a little more variety in what you're likely to see, from old to colourful to modern.

This arcade links Elizabeth Street with Centrepoint. Inside, it has an animated clock, which acts out the Cat and Fiddle Nursery Rhyme on the hour, every hour. There are seats there to rest your legs.

When my family visited me for my convocation, I arranged for a lunch at the Sorrell fruit farm after a fruit picking and fruit/wine tasting session at Sorell Fruit Farm.
It'll be interesting for city dwellers like us to get a tour with fruit picking experience at the farm.
If you are self-driving around Tasmania, I would suggest you make your way to the Sorrell Fruit Farm upon arriving at Hobart Airport especially if you plan to depart Tasmania from another airport.
The owner and his wife are very friendly and hospitable. I was very easy to contact them via email and todate, I am still on their mailing list of their in-season fruits list and special offers.
