Port Arthur is a worthwhile day trip, positioned in a beautiful area of Tasmania. Port Arthur enlightens the visitor, to a part of the orgins of Australia. www.portarthur.org.au

Visitors can take a tour of the Cadbury Chocolate factory, and taste samples. Saturdays there is the Salamanca market, and the Van Diemans land memorial folk museum.

Hobart has many Chinese restaurants, as well as other fine restaurants.

George, Port Arthur is a 19th century convict-era penal settlement on the Tasman Peninsula south-east of Hobart. It’s Tasmania’s premier historic site and is a good day-trip destination from Hobart. On the way there, Richmond is a small, historic village about 40km (25 miles) north-east of Hobart. It’s famous for its old convict-built bridge and gaol.

Mount Field National Park is the closest National POark to the north-west of Hobart . It's famed for its scenic wilderness areas, forests and waterfalls.

The Huon Valley, south-west of Hobart, is a picturesque farming valley, known for its waterways, apple orchards and forests. The Tahune Airwalk, an adventurous forest destination, is near Geeveston in the Huon Valley.

In Hobart city, Salamanca Place and its beautiful old warehouses and docks is on the southern edge of the Hobart CBD are worth a stroll. Nearby, Battery Point is an historic village precinct immediately to the west of Salamanca. Historic walking tours are conducted of the area.

Cascade Brewery, on the western edge of Hobart city, is Australia’s oldest brewery. You can do a guided tour of the brewery. Cascades Female Factory, on the way to Cascade Brewery, is the site of an historic women’s prison and barracks. Louisa’s Walk is an entertaining historic walking tour based from the Female factory.

Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, on the southern edge of the CBD near the docks, is an important repository for Tasmania's natural and cultural historic treasures.

Mount Wellington is the high mountain on Hobart’s western edge. It is a scenic lookout for the city, Derwent Valley and surrounds. You can catch the Mount Wellington Shuttle to the top of the mountain.

Ferry cruises on the Derwent River and to Bruny Island are an option.

Bonorong Wildlife Park is on the northern edge of the suburbs of Hobart, and is the closest wildlife park to Hobart's CBD. It features Tasmanian devils and other native wildlife.

You can do day trips to most of these places if you rent a car, or if you want to go with a tour, take a look at the Top Questions on the Hobart forum page. You'll also find links to all of the things I've mentioned there.

Nuri, there are no more tours of the Cadbury factory. Have you been to Tasmania?

George, you'll find lots of places to eat down around the docks - including floating fish shops (with Reasonably Priced Seafood) in Constitution Dock.

Think nothing of it, George.

There are two honey places open to the public near Launceston; one at Perth, the other at Mole Creek.
