How to Spend 3 Days in Hobart

How to Spend 3 Days in Hobart

Three days in Hobart offer plenty of time to experience Tasmania’s historic sites, natural wonders, and delicious cuisine. Take advantage of money-saving combo deals and sightseeing passes, spend longer at the sights that interest you most, and customize your itinerary to suit your interests. Here are some ideas.

 

Day 1: Sightseeing in the City

A hop-on hop-off bus tour is a great way to get around, offering the convenience of a guided tour while leaving you free to decide where to go and how long to stay at each stop. Spot landmarks like Parliament House and Victoria Docks, hop off to explore the historic neighborhood of Battery Point, or visit the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery.

 

Time your arrival in Salamanca for lunchtime and visit one of the seafood restaurants along the waterfront before strolling around Salamanca Market (Saturday only) or browsing the shops for souvenirs. In the afternoon, get back to nature with a walk around the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens or pay a visit to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, where the animal residents include Tasmanian devils, koalas, platypus, and wombats. 

 

After sunset, Hunter Street is the place to be, home to some of Hobart’s coolest bars and pubs.

 

Day 2: Mountains and Museums

The 4,170-foot (1,271-meter) peak of Mt. Wellington is Hobart’s most famous view point and affords stunning views over the city. For the most memorable experience, opt to hike to the summit or drive to the top, then take a thrilling downhill bike ride. Before heading back to the city, make a stop at the Cascade Brewery, where you can enjoy a beer at Tasmania’s oldest brewery.

 

Spend the afternoon at one of Hobart’s other top attractions, the MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). Tickets include a round-trip ferry ride across the Derwent River and entrance to the Moorilla Estate Winery, where you can enjoy lunch and wine tasting before admiring the museum collections.

 

Day 3: Take a Day Trip

The most popular choice for a day trip from Hobart is to nearby Port Arthur, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Tasmania’s most visited attractions. The former convict site is one of the most important and best preserved in Australia, and taking a tour offers insight into the country’s dark past. Visit the penitentiary, dockyard, coal mines, and separate prison; cruise around the harbor; then ride the ferry out to the Isle of the Dead, once home to the children’s prison.

 

Alternatively, set sail for Bruny Island, where you can spend the day wildlife watching, strolling along sandy beaches, and admiring landmarks like Bruny Island Lighthouse. The island is also a top choice for foodies as there are numerous opportunities to taste local specialties, including wine, whiskey, cheese, and oysters.
