Two destinations that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the fascinating Kettering Ferry Terminal and the ever-popular Bruny Island Ferry Terminal. Two other great attractions within a short distance of Margate are Organ Pipes and Mt. Wellington.
Watch local sporting heroes, the North Hobart Demons, take to the field in the nearby North Hobart Oval. On game days follow the procession of red and blue, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join fans in the nearby pubs for a few post-game beers.
