When it comes to exploring Tasmania, there are three cities that you absolutely cannot miss: Hobart, Devonport, and Launceston. Each city has its own unique charm, making it a must-visit destination for tourists.
Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, is nestled on the River Derwent and is known for its rich cultural heritage and stunning natural beauty. Here, you can explore the Salamanca Market, which is a bustling hub of local art, crafts, and food. You'll also want to take a stroll through Battery Point, a historic neighbourhood that's filled with quaint cottages and charming cafes.

Devonport, located on the north coast of Tasmania, is a city that's often overlooked by tourists. However, it's a hidden gem that's worth exploring. This coastal city is home to the Devonport Regional Gallery, which showcases works by local artists, as well as stunning beaches like Mersey Bluff and Coles Beach. Additionally, the ferry "Spirit of Tasmania" lands here which starts in Geelong. Devonport is also a great place to see wildlife, such as the world's smallest penguin - the Fairy Penguin - on Lillico Beach, parrots, and platypuses. And, of course, don't forget to try some of the delicious seafood at one of the local restaurants.
