Beach reserve that is a great place for a picnic, stroll along the beach, public BBQ facilities, great playground and open space. Great little woodfired pizza shop that opens in the afternoon too!

Interesting and unique tower that you can ascend (lots of stairs!) and take in the views from the top. Little tea rooms on site and pretty gardens.

Just down the road in South Hobart is Australia's oldest, still operating brewery. Take a tour inside the factory, or just have a meal and a few cold brews in the modern restaurant and bar across the road in what would arguably be Australia's best beer garden. Even if you don't like beer, the gardens and surrounds are worth the trip (and there's always the coffee machine in the restaurant if you'd prefer something warm!)

Stunning view from the top of towering Mt Wellington / kunanyi. Popular place to play in the snow, but check before travelling if the road is open - it can close if the road is too icy.

Stunning outdoor swimming pool fed by naturally warm springwater with a visitors centre (ice-cream, coffee and takeaway food) in the middle of the Tasmanian rainforest. BBQ facilities under a stone walled shelter. Make the day of it and take a tour of Hastings Caves as well, but the pool is cheap to enter. Is a bit of a hike from Hobart (1 1/2 hours drive) but the drive is stunning along the Huon River with little fishing villages dotted along the way. Stop in Geeveston to break the drive and visit the lolly shop!

Beautiful drive through the Derwent Valley with a relatively easy walk through pristine forest to the Russell Falls. Other great walks nearby if you want something a bit more energetic, such as the Tall Trees walk to see some of the largest trees in Tasmania (and the world!)

Must see art gallery, even if you don't appreciate art, the architecture is quite impressive. If you don't want to pay to enter (interstate visitors are charged an entry fee) you can still sit up top and enjoy a drink from the restaurant.

Well renowned restaurant in New Norfolk (approx. 30 min drive) that truly embodies the paddock to plate principles. Worth the drive through classic Tasmanian alongside the Derwent River.

Local coffee shop in Sandy Bay with great breakfasts. Next to the Post Office on King Street. Parking can be tricky on this side of King Street, easier to park in the top deck of Woolies and walk over if you're driving.

Held every 2nd Friday through to March, this is a little local favourite to sample Tassie's finest food vans, including fresh oysters, Chilean empanadas, craft beer, local wine and much more. All outdoors, dog-friendly, by the beach at Sandy Bay. There's also another market in the city. Check https://appleislewinetours.com.au/hobart-twilight-market/ for dates.

Great local coffee shop with Asian influence. The tofu bao buns with a peanut sauce and chinese cabbage are my favourite! (They're vegan, and I'm not even vegetarian and I could eat them every day).

Big, juicy, creative 'proper' burgers. A little bit more on the expensive side for burgers, but you pay for what you get and it's worth it (and there's always McDonalds down the road!)

German Bakery in Sandy Bay (opposite Coles). THE best place to buy fresh bread in Hobart. Not necessarily artisan, sourdough breads, but just good, honest old fashioned European bread and lovely sweets, pretzels and pumpkin seed sticks.

French Patisserie in Sandy Bay (on the main corner/ traffic lights). There's also a bigger Daci & Daci near Salamanca on Murray Street for the full French experience. The one in Sandy Bay has some space to sit inside, but doesn't have the ambience of the one on Murray Street.

Best fish and chips in Hobart. Woodfired oven also cooks baked fish (dependent on what they get on the day) and pizza. Definitely a local favourite overlooking the water on Sandy Bay Road.

City/town information
Old historic town, antique shop paradise, quirky little shops, Australia's oldest still operating pub, set on the upper Derwent River lined with deciduous trees. Further along in Bushy Park is the hop growing region of Tasmania where in autumn you can travel past rows of hops hanging from their trestles.
