Nandroya Vineyard


Nandroya Vineyard is a boutique, cool-climate vineyard at Margate, in southern Tasmania. Margate is a 20-minute drive south of Hobart (19 kilometres), in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel district.
The name 'Nandroya' is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning 'a family living in harmony' - reflecting the approach that vignerons John and Joy Rees take to all aspects of the winemaking process. Established in 1995, the 1.5-hectare (four acre) vineyard specialises in Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Small quantities of high quality fruit are grown at the vineyard to produce fine wines made by a local winemaker.
Visitors to Nandroya can sample the latest vintage while enjoying views of Mount Wellington, North West Bay and Bruny Island.

Inverawe Native Gardens


Tasmania's largest landscaped native garden is situated a 15-minute drive from Hobart, Tasmania's capital.
Be inspired by this garden with its enormous collection of Australian native plants that sweep down to the shoreline of North West Bay. Be overwhelmed by the colour, texture and subtle scents.
Take tea on the terrace or just sit on one of the many seats, soak up the atmosphere of peace and serenity, watch some of Inverawe's 101 bird species bustle about. All twelve endemic bird species have been seen here. Bring a note book and list plants you want for your own garden. They're identified by name. Borrow some of our landscaping ideas.
French explorers and early botanists anchored in the bay and fetched water from our river. Interpretive signs tell that story. Ten thousand native plants have gone into this fourteen-year-old garden, supplementing natural regeneration. Plants are chosen for minimum water requirements and sustainability. Paths, rock walls, sculpture and poetry enhance your experience.
You'll be met on arrival, introduced to the garden and given a coloured map to help you navigate around this extensive garden. Guided tours are available on request.

Wellington Park - Mt Wellington


This touch of wilderness on Hobart's doorstep offers walking, climbing, abseiling, cycling and sightseeing opportunities less than a half-hour drive from the city.
Only in Tasmania would you find so much wilderness and natural beauty so close to the city. Mt Wellington is visible from just about anywhere in Hobart and locals, not surprisingly, refer to it as "the mountain".
The views from the summit of Mt Wellington are truly superb.
The 21 kilometre drive to the summit passes through temperate rainforest to sub-alpine flora and glacial rock formations and ends with panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, D'Entrecasteux Channel and into the South West Wilderness.
On the mountain are numerous walking tracks ranging from easy strolls to tough climbs through cool forests and past springs, cascades, waterfalls and the soaring dolerite columns of the Organ Pipes.

Shot Tower - The


Built in 1870 for the production of shot, this sandstone tower rises 58 metres above the banks of the Derwent, affording spectacular views up, down and across the river.
The tower is ten metres in diameter at the base and 3.9 metres at the top - the walls a metre thick at the bottom thin out to 45 centimetres at the top. Molten lead was dropped from top to bottom of the hollow tower and its rapid descent and cooling roughly shaped it into pellets.
There is a museum at the base of the tower and a tea rooms alongside. There are 259 steps to the top, but 25 landings on which to catch your breath.
