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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (in Brighton), Port Arthur Historic Site (in Port Arthur) and Tasmanian Devil Unzoo (in Taranna). The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at Mount Wellington, examine the collection at Museum of Old and New Art (Mona), admire the natural beauty at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, and get curious at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

To find other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Hobart online day trip planner.

Perth to Hobart is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus. The time zone difference moving from Australian Western Standard Time (AWST) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) is 2 hours. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Perth in January; daily highs in Hobart reach 26°C and lows reach 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) so you can drive to Launceston.
