Five Nights in Tasmania - Fly in & Out Hobart

Hi There

Myself & my partner fly into Hobart on a Saturday at around 4pm, we have five nights in Tasmania before flying back out of Hobart on the Thursday at 12noon.

We originally thought we could stay in Coles Bay/Freycinet our last two nights and drive to the airport the morning of our flight. Do you think this is practical? How long is the actual drive?

We'd like to spend a night or two in Hobart, visit Coles Bay/Wineglass Bay, do the penguin tour in Bicheno, visit some vineyards if possible. Oh and Port Arthur is a possibility if we have time.

Any suggestions on itineraries much appreciated!!

Thank you!

It's about 2.5 hours drive from Freycinet to Hobart Airport.

I'd spend the first three of your five nights in Hobart.

Unfortunately you will miss Salamanca markets as it'll be finished before you arrive in town on the Saturday evening.

I'd go to the Coal River Valley around Richmond on the Sunday for the wineries. Lunch at Frogmore Creek is good. I'd go to MONA for a day on Monday. On Tuesday head to Port Arthur and then drive up the coast to Freycinet or nearby. Wednesday in that neck of the woods. Back to the airport Thursday morning.

Have a browse through the Top Questions on the right of the page for more ideas.
