How to Spend 2 Days in Hobart

How to Spend 2 Days in Hobart

Two days in Hobart give you enough time to take in the city highlights and visit nearby Port Arthur, one of Tasmania’s most important historic sights. Plan your itinerary wisely to maximize your time and take advantage of combo tours and super-saver deals for great discounts on Hobart attractions. Here are some ideas.

 

Day 1: Hop around Hobart

**Morning:**A guided sightseeing tour or hop-on hop-off bus tour is the perfect way to explore Hobart. Jump off to shop for handicrafts at Salamanca Market (Saturday), visit Battery Point and Victoria Docks, or stroll around the beautiful Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.

 

**Afternoon:**Choose between two of Hobart’s top attractions. Either head to the 4,170-foot (1,271-meter) summit of Mt. Wellington for a stunning view over the city or visit the famous MONA (Museum of Old and New Art); tickets to the museum include a ferry ride across the Derwent River, and you can enjoy wine tasting at the neighboring Moorilla Winery.

 

**Night:**Continue sightseeing into the evening with a night tour of Hobart, and admire illuminated landmarks such as Tasman Bridge, Cornelian Bay, and Mt. Nelson Signal Station. End the night with a stroll along the picturesque harbor, where you can enjoy a seafood dinner or drinks at a waterfront bar.

 

Day 2: Visit Port Arthur

**Morning:**Learn more about Australia’s convict history on a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic site. See the penitentiary, dockyard, coal mines, and separate prison; hear stories about colonial times from your guide; and perhaps cruise out to the Isle of the Dead, once home to the children’s prison.

 

**Afternoon:**It’s possible to spend an entire day at Port Arthur, but adventurous travelers can also combine it with the natural wonders of the Tasman Peninsula. Set sail along the coast of Tasman National Park on a thrilling wildlife cruise and watch for seals, dolphins, and seabirds.

 

**Night:**Book a table at one of Hobart’s seafront restaurants—The Glass House and Aloft are popular choices—for dinner with a view. After enjoying tasty Tasmanian dishes and local wines, end the night with a drink at one of the many pubs or bars along Hunter Street.
