If you’re heading to Tasmania or new to the state, there are a few places you should be sure to visit with the family. Check out these top 3 free things to do with kids in Tasmania.
Royal Tasmania Botanic Gardens – Lower Domain Road, Queens Domain
Plan a day out and take in all the natural beauty of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. There are a host of wonderful things to see at the Gardens – your little one’s education about nature and the earth can begin here, and bigger kids can expand their knowledge.
Just wandering through the Gardens can be enough to occupy little minds as they try to identify the various plants, take in all the different things from tiny flowers to huge trees, and get some exercise by walking around. Pack a picnic, or eat at the restaurant, and your day will be amazing.
There are also school holiday activities and events put on at the Gardens that your little ones would love.
Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery – Dunn Place, Hobart
Another great, free place to spend some time with the kids is the Tasmania Museum and Art Gallery. With so many different exhibits to explore and experience, your kids will be chomping at the bit to find out more about all the displays. This is a great place to hide some learning among the fun times being had by everyone.
The Museum and Art Gallery also put on family events and activities – both regular activities and one-off events are available for kids of all ages. Check out their website to see what you can book in for, and plan a great day with the family.
Salamanca Market – Salamanca Place, Hobart
These markets are a vibrant, cultural extravaganza. By bringing your kids here, they will experience things they may have never before, but will definitely want to again. With street buskers and artisans showing off their talents, as well as nearly 300 market stalls, the Salamanca Market is a must-see in Tasmania – and it’s free to enter!
You and the family can experience new tastes with fresh, locally produced foods and drinks, great fashion styles, and hand-made crafts by the locals. So bring the kids, spend the day wandering around the market, and take in all the Tasmanian culture!
