When staying at the Brighton Hotel Motel, you might be interested in the local attractions and activities. You’ll actually be well placed to enjoy all that the southern part of Tasmania has to offer.
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys getting back to nature, there are plenty of opportunities for you to do so when staying in Brighton. In particular, we recommend the Lake St Clair National Park, Eaglehawk Neck (be sure to check out the Tessellated Pavement), Liffey Falls, Tyenna River, Derwent River, Russell Falls, Cockle Creek, Hastings Cave State Reserve and the many beaches scattered along Tasmania’s east coast (don’t forget they’ll be cold!).
Many people come to Hobart to enjoy the many walks and trails that are dotted throughout the region. Some of the more popular ones include the Cascade Walking Track (2.4km), Hobart to the Pinnacle (14.2km), Organ Pipes Circuit (9.2km), Truganini Track (2.1km), Gentle Annie Falls Circuit (1.3km), Historic Battery Point (5.8km), New Town Rivulet Track (7.5km), North South Track (11.0km) and the Fern Glade Circuit (1.7km).
If you want to learn more about the history of Hobart, there are plenty of attractions for you to check out. In particular, we recommend Callington Mill (a windmill built in 1837), the Museum of Old and New Art (your tour begins underground and you must work your way to the surface), Willow Court (which was originally built as a military hospital but also spent time as an insane asylum) and the Maritime Museum of Tasmania.
The region is known for producing some delicious local produce and wines, so ensure that you sample a few of them during your stay. When visiting Callington Mill, be sure to pick up some of the freshly milled grains (such as flour, semolina and bran). Those with a sweet tooth must pay a visit to the Cadbury Visitor Centre, where you can learn how these delicious chocolates are made and even sample some of the raw products! Note that the factory is closed on weekends.
If you want to get up close and personal with some of our local wildlife, Hobart is the perfect destination. In particular, we recommend Zoodoo Wildlife Park (where many of the exhibits are interactive, which the kids love), Bonorong Wildlife Park (which is home to a number of unique animals, including Eastern Quolls and Tasmanian Devils) and the Maydena Alpaca Stud. There are plenty of opportunities for the kids to pat and even hold some of these creatures.
If you’re up for a day trip, we definitely recommend heading to historic Port Arthur, about an hour and a half’s drive. The location operated as a penal settlement between 1830 and 1877. There are a number of activities to choose from, such as walking around some of the historic buildings, taking one of the tours (like the Isle of the Dead Cemetery Tour or the Ghost Tour), watching a history play, or wandering through the grounds and gardens.
