looks like rain - suggestions for 5 days in Hobart
Save

Hi, heading with the family to Hobart tomorrow - into what appears like will be a very wet week. going with a >1yr old and a 5 yr old. Any suggestions what we can do considering the wet weather & kids? .... was hoping check out some of the attractions as the top 11 ... but assuming things like the tahune airwalk will be a no go if the weather doesnt smile on us..

Re Mona - is it possible to see this and follow a 'child friendly' route through the gallery?

Take a look at some of the day bus tours on the FAQ about day trips and tours. You could do the Richmond and Mount Wellington bus tour and with a bit of luck there'll be snow.

The map/guide pamphlet of the gallery at MONA has the AO areas marked and some of these are definitely not suitable for kids, but there also many other areas that are OK. The ferry trip is also good.

The Cadbury factory no longer does guided tours. There's an interpretation centre and a discount shop (pay to enter) now.

Alpenrail (not far from MONA) s good for kids. http://www.alpenrail.com.au/

And the very best place to go on a wet day with kids is the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery next door to the Info Centre.

And sorry to say, it's school hols in Tassie for the next two weeks. :(
