Places of Interest


Mount Wellington

It only takes a 10 minute drive to reach the bottom of Mount Wellington. From there, choose a short walk, a long hike, a mountain bike ride or scale the 1300-metre sub-alpine rocky summit and reward yourself with incredible views of the city and Derwent Valley. On the way back down, stop in at Cascade Brewery

Maria Island National Park

Seventy-five kilometres east of Hobart is Maria Island. Enjoy astonishing pristine beauty – historic ruins, rugged cliff faces, sweeping beaches and unique wildlife – including Tasmanian devils and Bennetts wallabies. Stop to appreciate Bishop and Clark Islets and view the ancient fossils and weather-shaped formations. There are great trails which are also suitable for cyclists.
