Already visited Mona, Salamanca Market and kunanyi / Mt Wellington? Here are some other activities and things to do in Hobart, Tasmania.
You’ve probably heard of Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, MONA, Salamanca Market and kunanyi/Mt Wellington and if you haven’t, then there is a reason why they are top of the list of many Hobart visitors. We may be slightly biased but we think a guided walk tours on Hobart’s mountain is right up there with the best. Here’s five more activities that are worthy contenders…
1) Hobart Mountain Bike Tours
Ok so we love kunanyi / Mt Wellington and Mountain Biking is another great way to experience this special place. Jono and his team from Hobart Mountain Bike Tours will show you the best trails and sure to have you in stitches (laughing that is) not the hospital type. Their love for riding, the mountain and Hobart is infectious. Our pick of the tours is the Ride the Mountain tour.
Cost: $95 Booking: http://hobartmtbtours.com.au/
2) Lark Whisky Distillery Tour
You may have heard that Hobart is home to Australia’s oldest brewery, Cascade Brewery which has a great tour, but did you know that Hobart is home to Australia’s oldest whisky distillery? Lark Distillery are pioneers and their tour tells of their history and whisky and exciting future. Witness the science, art and passion that goes into making the award-winning Lark Single Malt Whisky. Meet the distillers, see production close up and sample spirits every step of the way, including tour-exclusive tasting of Lark whiskies straight from the cask, surrounded by future releases in our bond store.

3) Evolo Room Escape
A room escape is a unique form of entertainment where your group will be stuck in a mysterious room (willingly I might add) and you have to rely on your teamwork, communication and creative problem-solving to succeed.
Evolo Room Escape opened the first room escape experience in Hobart, Tasmania back in October 2016. Since establishment Evolo has produced several more rooms and continually aims to challenge, surprise and immerse customers with their decoratively-themed puzzle-solving experiences.
Cost: $39.50 per adult Booking: https://www.evoloroomescape.com/
4) Roaring 40’s kayaking
The Derwent Estuary is gorgeous, and great for all water sports particularly sailing and kayaking. Where else in the world can you encounter a seal, penguin, dolphin or even a whale?! Let alone next to a beautiful capital city with a towering mountain backdrop. Exploring Hobart’s historic waterfront on kayak give’s a unique perspective and doing it using a double two person kayak really reduces the strain. Cost is $95 per adult. Roaring 40’s are a legendary company down here is Tassie, having just been inducted into the tourism hall of fame. I’ve even bought my first sea kayak from them!

5) Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
The Bonorong Night Tour is a group feeding tour with a guide and every participant has plenty of opportunity to interact with the critters. You will enter the animals’ world and experience hand-feeding weird and wonderful creatures like Eastern quolls, tawny frogmouths and sugar gliders. You will also be able to help your guide feed the Tassie devils their dinner! You get to help feed almost all of the animals, as it’s dinner time for daylight dwellers and then the nocturnal animals get their breakfast. Adult tickets cost $165
