A bit farther along the coast you’ll find Stanley, home of The Nut, an old volcanic formation. There’s a gondola you can ride to the top for $10 if you’d prefer to save 30 minutes of energy for…the car ride. Take in the view and then get going. You won’t need to spend more than a couple hours here as there’s not much more to see.

The capital of the island state of Tasmania, Hobart's beauty, in several ways, lies in its simplicity and its sheer humility. With a towering Mount Wellington, a vibrant waterfront, historic architecture, fresh (Tassie) produce and constantly flowing beer, it could easily be Australia's answer to Europe and is therefore a great place to wine, dine and relax.

The final stop before heading back to Devonport is Launceston. If you can return your car on Tassie and fly back from Launceston (or even Hobart) instead, I’d recommend it. As fun as it is, you won’t want to take that ferry more than once. The James Boags brewery is located here, along with the Tasmania Zoo. If you’re into wildlife (especially birds) you’ll want to make a pit stop. It’s a bit run-down but they do have Tasmanian Devil feeding sessions. And if there’s one thing you can’t leave Tassie without seeing, it’s The Devil!
