Tasmania, the southern most state of Australia can suffer at times from the impacts of its own anonymity, such is its location away from the more popular capital cities. Whilst the tourism industry here is growing, it’s a slow and steady race, meaning much of Tasmania is still catching up to the mainland in many ways.

The positive side of being lesser known is the gentle pace that is associated with it. Free from major urban development and the hustle of the city, there’s no need to rush here. Take your time and breathe in the fresh air. It’s one of the great things Tasmania is known for.

Whilst reasonably easy to see the whole state in a week to ten days, there’s so much on offer that you should try and spend a little more time here to do it well.

We spent three days just in Hobart which is a perfect amount of time to explore what the capital city has to offer.

Hobart

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.
You've added Mount Nelson Lookout, Elizabeth Street Pier, Brooke Street Pier, and other attractions to your itinerary. It doesn't end there: go for a walk through Battery Point Sculpture Trail.

For other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Hobart sightseeing site .

In March, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
