Tasmania 4/4: from Freycinet Peninsula to Hobart

Photo gallery: Tasmania: from Freycinet Peninsula to Hobart

Nine Mile Beach – sandy dunes with grass

Forestier and Tasman Peninsula – south-eastern Tasmania

Freycinet National Park – consists of granite mountains and surrounded by azure bays and white sand beaches

Port Arthur – a site of an historic convict settlement

Tasman National Park – protects diverse forest and spectacular coastline

Richmond – a historical town with Australia's oldest bridge still in use

Hobart – the state capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. Founded in 1803 as a penal colony, it is Australia's second oldest and eleventh largest city, with a metropolitan population of approximately 202,000.

Mount Wellington – rising 1270 metre above Hobart’s harbour provides panoramic views of Hobart. Simply great finish of my Tasmania’s trip!
