A great beach to visit, no matter what the weather.  There is a permenant off lead dog walking area

2. Lunch at Bangor Wine and Oyster Shed

We love stopping in here for afternoon tea or lunch.  The dog is welcome to enjoy the fenced outdoor area (on lead) and the kids really love the play area while you can enjoy some great Tas wines!

Bangor Vineyard Shed is a unique wine and food experience. The cellar door for Bangor’s Wines, The Shed sits beside the vineyard and overlooks beautiful Blackman Bay. Sit by the fire in winter or on the deck in summer. You will experience what Tasmania is all about: wonderful views, wine and fresh seafood. The Dunbabin family is passionate about their farm produce and has build this special place to share their wine and local produce with you. Bangor Vineyard Shed is the perfect place to stop on the road to and from Port Arthur. A beautiful 45 minute drive from Hobart, Bangor Shed is an ideal place to settle in for an afternoon with family and friends.

3. Visit the Bream Creek Farmers Market

If you’re lucky enough to plan your trip on the first Sunday of the month then you’re in for a treat!  Great local produce and live music.  The best way to get to know the locals and relax for the morning.  Finish off the day with a walk along nearby Marion Bay beach and a short drive past the cows of the Bream Creek Dairy.

Bream Creek farmers market

Bream Creek Farmers Market is a produce based market held at the Bream Creek Show Grounds on the first Sunday of every month, showcasing growers, cooks, brewers, producers and makers, from South Eastern Tasmania and beyond.  The Market has a focus on locally grown, fresh and seasonal produce which is sold directly by the people who grow and make it.

The Bream Creek Farmers Market is run entirely by a volunteer committee who are all passionate about supporting the local community and economy, supporting small, local businesses and providing an opportunity to purchase the best and freshest local produce.  We are proud to have an exciting and every-changing variety of produce available – seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables, honey, olive oils, nuts, baked goods and cakes, ready to eat snacks and lunches, take-home meals, wines, ginger beers and ciders, coffee, seedlings and plants, condiments, jams, preserves and so much more.

Our location overlooking the green, rolling hills of Bream Creek is second to none and a fabulous atmosphere is provided by live music and children’s activities such as face painting.  We love seeing our visitors kick back on the grass to enjoy a coffee or glass of local wine and some lunch with their baskets of locally goodies overflowing beside them!

4. Port Arthur Historic Site

Such disturbing and interesting history, the Port Arthur Historic Site is really worth spending a day to look around.  If you’re travelling with your dog they are allowed to come too (though not all areas – best to check first).

Port Arthur Historic Site

The Port Arthur Historic Site is the best-preserved convict settlement in Australia and among the most significant convict era sites in the world. It has won many awards and has been called one of Australia’s great tourism destinations. The Site combines rich history and scenic beauty to tell the stories of the harsh discipline and determined industry of the settlement. It is a place to discover Australian history and connect with the origins of Australian culture.

5. Museum Of Old and New Art (MONA)

Well worth a visit.  Even better catch the Mona Roma from Hobart and travel in style in the ‘posh pit’with a few wines and nibbles.

Museum of old and new art Pavilion

Googles rather boring description of this  unique museum: Mostly-underground art museum with a playful vibe & a wine bar on the Moorila Winery grounds.

If you’re here for Dark Mofo (in June) Hobart comes alive for this winter festival! MONA has definitely made an impact on Hobart. Best see for yourself what all the fuss is about!

6. Maria Island

Leaving from the small fishing village of Triabunna, jump on the boat for the short trip to Maria Island.  One of the best places to spot a common wombat in the wild.  Spend the day or stay a night or two, this is a magical place to spend some time.

Maria Island is a national park only accessible from boat.  There are some basic accommodations you can stay at (book via National Parks website) or byo camping gear.  Beautiful beaches, walks and wildlife.  Great for bike riding too.

7. Historic Richmond

History, cafes, ducks, art.  What more could you want for an outing?!

8. Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Our native wildlife can be hard to spot, especially when most of the sleep all day!  Save yourself hours of hiding out in the cold.  Visit Bonorong.  You will also be supporting a great cause as these guys run a wildlife rescue center.  Make a note if you find any injured wildlife – call these guys.

9. Sunset on the Deck at Southern Beaches Holiday House.

Grab some wine and cheese, sit down and relax, you’re meant to be on holiday!  You don’t need to go any further, watch sunset over the water as you look towards Mt Wellington.  The view is even better if you go up the back of the property under the trees. At the right time of year you’ll hear the shearwaters coming in at dusk on Spectacle Island.  If you’re into aviation you can also watch the planes coming into land at Hobart airport.
