Many of Hobart’s attractions are located within easy reach of Brighton, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Two destinations that should be at the top of every visitor’s itinerary is the fabulous Cadbury Chocolate Factory and the much-loved Derwent Entertainment Centre. If time permits, be sure to also visit the Grannie Rhodes' Cottage and Mt. Wellington.
Do make the effort to see some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make the area such a rewarding holiday destination. Spend a while viewing the exhibits at the Maritime Museum of Tasmania. Experience some of the magical theater, dance and music shows at the Playhouse Theatre.
To stock up on supplies or enjoy a light meal, set out to visit the Eastlands Shopping Centre in Rosny Park.
If you're a sports fan, be sure to catch local legends, the North Hobart Demons, take to the field at North Hobart Oval. On match days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of red and blue, as crowds come together to support their home-grown heroes.
After a long day taking in the sights around Brighton, relax for the night in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep check out the amenities at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart, the Travelodge Hotel Hobart, and the popular Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel.
