Richmond zoo or Tasmania zoo (in Launceston?) both are good.
The chocolate factory is really cr@p now! They don't do the tours anymore you go into a room watch a movie then you can go purchase chocolate (can get some real bargains though.)
I've only done the boags tour and I was NOT looking forward to it, but it was actually really good.
Port Arthur is great.
Lower crackpot has tasmazia which is amazing but cost.
If your flying over to launceston bigalong bay is really far away.
Launceston has a great city park with monkeys. The gorge is also lovely, great for a picnic, swim and play at the park. Both are free oh and the muse is free too.
Sorry I don't know anythings to do around where you are staying. It is beautiful there.

Port Arthur and Cadburys are down south, you would have to stay overnight as you couldn't get from Binalong Bay and back again in a day.
You could go to Wineglass Bay/Coles Bay - there are some nice walks you can do around there. There's a cool wildlife park at Bicheno but there's an entry fee.

Last time I went to port Arthur we were there for about 3 hours and didn't see everything.
You are looking at 4 hours there + stops 3 hours at port Arthur then 4 hours back!!!! With a toddler. I personally wouldn't do it.
Then it's another 1.5 hours to hobart if you want to do cadburys.
Your looking at 11 hour day trip just to do port Arthur and 4+ hours for cadburys on top of that.

When I was 16 we stayed in Hobart & I recall the day trip to Port Arthur - it was a long day. We stopped at some pretty places along the way (gorges, apple farm, etc) and then spent ages at Port Arthur (there's lots to see) and then came back to Hobart. It was a long day. If you're coming from the North to start with you'll find it to be a huge day. We went back for a 2nd time to an Australia Day concert/fireworks event a few days later and were only there for a few hours so it wasn't so bad.
As for things to do close to where you are look at this website - http://www.discovertasmania.com.au/ - you'll find heaps of things to see. Tasmania is very beautiful and there's heaps to see & do, lots of it is very cheap or free.
