Lovely city did our own thing and a 90 minute city bus tour was very good.

So much to see ... started at the beautiful Botanic Gardens (too many highlights, but don't miss Pete's Patch - home of ABC TV's Gardening Australia); strolled past Government House; viewed ruins of the Hobart Zoo (where the last thylacine [Tasmanian Tiger] died in 1936); meandered through the city's plentiful parks and commercial centre before enjoying lunch at Salamanca.

Booked a private tour that included Mt Wellington, Bonorong, and Richmond. The ship didn't offer anything that included all 3. Loved interacting with the kangaroos.

Went to MONA (Museum of Old and New Art) - very unusual, confronting but I enjoyed it. Ferry ride there is a bonus. Be prepared to get lost navigating around bu that's part of the experience. Walked around Hobart.

We arrived late 2-10pm and most stores closed 4-5pm which gave us nothing to do.

Went to the stunning MONA, enjoyed Hop On Hop Off tour of the city, Brooke St Pier, Salamanca market, ate at Fish Frenzy and found a new favourite beer - Moo Cow. Though Cascade remains a stunning choice and the pinot noirs here are not to be missed. Tasmania is so fresh and satisfying - even if only staying 8 hours. Read Less

Did an independent red hopon hopoff tour round Hobart and stopped at the Botanical Gardens which are spectacular. Highly recommend a visit here. The bus tour and commentary was very good

We've never been to Hobart before and probably won't be coming back anytime soon either. I wonder what's the fuzz about this place? It's a miserable small town with some random old buildings (meh- you get them pretty much anywhere) and the worst city planning possible which ensures that you always get one or two Uber-ugly 60ies or 70ies concrete buildings right next or behind the old pretty ones. Also lots of stinky unsightly industry in town and around the water inlet and many overpriced restaurants and cafés. Clearly a destination for an older crowd. The one big exception to all this was the MONA. What an amazing place and feels totally out of this world in this otherwise boring and rainy location! Almost worth the trip all the way to Hobart but definitely the only thing that would get me back here. The city itself- definitely Australia at its worst- pretty much any other city I've ever been to in this beautiful country has been more inspiring. And if you want nature, proper untouched amazing nature, then you're way better off in New Zealand so that doesn't count either. Meh. Read Less
