Australia and Oceania Things to Do: 244 reviews and 430 photos

  Cascade Brewery and Mount Wellington
by ATXtraveler

One of the often overlooked states in Australia is also one of the most beautiful, Tasmania. We recently enjoyed 7 days in Tasmania, and the capital city is definitely a good starting point for a journey here.

Tasmania is one of the oldest colonies of Britian, and was primarilly started as a penal colony. Hobart became the home to some of the most dangerous bread stealers in all of England, but how else could you gain the entire board in your game of Risk?

Hobart itself has some major attractions like the Cadbury Chocolate Factory, Cascade Brewery, Salamanca Markets, the freshest fish in Australia... and of course the beautiful Mount Wellington, which Charles Darwin was said to have summitted in less than 6 hours.
