The well known Tahune AirWalk is a 1 and a half hour’s drive from Hobart, offering a suspended 37 metres high walkway above spectacular forest canopies. It is a part of the Huon Trail which includes the Hastings thermal pool, caves and sheltered bays of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. AirWalk admission fees are A $11 for adults and A $7 for children.

The Tasmanian Peninsula provides a great day trip from Hobart, providing natural wonders such as the Blowhole and Tasmanian Arch, stunning coastal scenery, the Tasmanian Devil Park and Australia's most significant convict site, the Port Arthur Historic Site. Visitors can enjoy guided walking tours, a cruise to the Isle of the Dead, restored buildings and spectacular gardens, or perhaps even embark on a spine-chilling ghost tour.

Launceston, Tasmania’s 2nd largest city on the north of the island, retains much of its colonial Georgian / Edwardian flavour. It is the natural gateway for the rustic beauty of the island, including the Cataract Gorge and the Launceston Lake Wildlife Sanctuary.

City Park is popular for its Botanical Conservatory and Monkey Island featuring Japanese mecaque monkeys. The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery at Inveresk features original Tasmanian and Aboriginal art as well as varied temporary exhibitions, entry is free.
