  • Cascade Brewery Tours: The Cascade Brewery Company Pty Ltd is Australia's oldest brewery. Nestled in the rolling hills of South Hobart, the Historic buildings are set against the majestic backdrop of Mount Wellington and offer brewery tours, fine gardens and Historic buildings to the curious tourist. As the headquarters for the Cascade brewery, The Cascade Beverage Company and Carlton & United Breweries in Tasmania, the brewery is of great interest to both beer lovers and history buffs alike.
  • Cradle Mountain: Cradle Mountain boasts a variety of fine bushwalks, varying in difficulty from simple to rigorous. A good beginners walk circles Dove Lake (foreground of below pictures) and takes approximately 1 hours (prepared paths, mostly flat). For the more experienced, the Overland Track to Lake St. Clair is one of Australia's best-known bushwalks, and covers 85 km (53 mi).
  • Eagelhawk Neck: The Eaglehawk Neck Historic Site offers visitors a unique perspective upon the security system which operated throughout the Tasman and Forestier Peninsulas during the convict period. The infamous dogline which ran across the Neck was devised to prevent the escape of prisoners from Port Arthur, while a semaphore station provided communication with the rest of the peninsula.
  • Freycinet Peninsula: This peninsula extend south into the Tasman Sea from east-central Tasmania, Australia. Measuring about 14 miles (23 km) by 4 miles (6.5 km), with an area of 25 square miles (65 square km), it rises to a high point at Mount Freycinet (2,011 feet [613 m]), one of the peaks along a high central granite ridge known as the Hazards. The peninsula is joined to the mainland by twin sandspits. Off its southern tip lie the Schouten Passage and Island and, to the west, Oyster Bay. The promontory was surveyed in 1802 by the French captain Nicolas Baudin and was named after his lieutenant, Louis-Claude de Saulces de Freycinet. In 1916 part of the peninsula was made a national park, which is entered via the resort town of Coles Bay, 70 miles (115 km) northeast of Hobart.
