Seven days is not nearly enough time to discover the natural beauty, the rich artisan culture and people of Tasmania.

But with Easter just around the corner holidaymakers will need to stick to a tight schedule if they want to squeeze a holiday into their pre-winter break.

With this in mind, there are a number of short tours that take you from the mountains to the sea as well as few city destinations in just a short period of time.

Hobart is a great place to start your next island adventure and if you arrive on a Saturday morning, you can easily take advantage of the Salamanca Market.

Adults will no doubt make a beeline for the region’s many award-winning wines that you can pick up in nearby Coal River Valley.

While you are in the area you may want to enjoy lunching in one of the vineyard restaurants. The breathtaking views will help you to unwind. You can even Motor Trike out there on a Tour to take the un-wind further.

For those with an eye for antiques or art dealings there are a number of galleries and boutique stores to visit in Richmond – which is only a short drive further on.

After an afternoon of exploring leave time to head back into Hobart and start comparing brews at Cascade, Australia’s oldest brewery.

You may want to book ahead in order to join a tour group or book a table if travelling as part of a group – just to make sure that you don’t miss out on this truly unforgettable experience.

After sampling gourmet cheeses and the best types of home-brew, you will want to take a walk around Salamanca Place (if you haven’t done so already) and Battery Point.

The harbour is easily one of the city’s main attractions and you can easily spend an afternoon watching boats sail by. It is also a great place to dine on fresh local seafood. If you have been rushing around all day, it is a great place to come back to, to slow down and conclude the day.
