As you pass the Parliament House, explore Salamanca Place and gaze in wonderment at the Georgian-style houses and boutique shops at Battery Point. Later, enjoy the breathtaking view of Derwent River from Sandy Bay and visit the adjacent casino of Wrest Point. Next, travel to St. David's Park, the first burial site in Tasmania, and visit the Cascade Valley, the oldest brewery in Australia.
