Hobart is full of history and culture; it sits on the River Derwent and one of the most historic areas is Battery Point overlooking the water.
Start your trip off by visiting Salamanca Place, these old warehouses have been preserved and converted into craft shops, galleries, performing arts venues and cafes. Head there on a Saturday where the market boasts over 300 stalls.
Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery are great to stroll around on a cold afternoon, whilst there take a glimpse at Tasmania's oldest building -- the Commissariat, which was built in 1808.
Beer lovers will be in their element on the tour of the Cascade Brewery and after, soak this up at one of the many restaurants at Battery Point, Salamanca Place or Constitution Dock.
