Located approximately 13 miles west of Hobart, Wellington Park should be a top choice for outdoor enthusiasts staying in Hobart. This nature reserve is filled with picnic areas and forested gullies, which can be explored via a variety of trails. Hiking (or bushwalking) is the most common way to wander around this park, but for a greater thrill, visitors can get around by bike, horse or four-wheel drive vehicle. (Note: Bikes, horses and four-wheel drive vehicles can only be rented from operators outside the park.) Experienced climbers can also hike the Organ Pipes, a series of vertical rock buttresses situated on Mount Wellington.

When you're in need of a low-key activity after spending multiple days trekking through Tasmania's national parks or along the Three Capes Track, spend an hour or two at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. Nestled within Hobart's Queens Domain neighborhood by the Derwent River, this outdoor oasis features multiple gardens – including ones that house indigenous species, herbs and cactuses – spread throughout more than 34 acres. A conservatory, a lily pond and the world's only subantarctic plant house (which mimics the cold, wet conditions plants native to the subantarctic islands thrive in) are also located on-site.
