Guide to Tasman Peninsula
The Tasman Peninsula is usually seen on a day trip from Hobart, but it deserves a few days to properly explore. Rent a car and escape the city for a weekend of spectacular scenery, native wildlife, and local delicacies.
It’s easy to see why the Tasman Peninsula, only a 1.5-hour drive from Hobart, is popular with visitors. This picturesque destination has stunning beaches that are nearly empty of people, towering sea cliffs, hikes through national parks, and an abundance of native animals that you are nearly guaranteed to see up close.
