There's a great collection of historic Tasmanian transport here at the museum. You will need a car to get here, as it is in the suburbs and not easily accessible. Wear good walking shoes and dress appropriately as most exhibits are outside. The museum is staffed by volunteers so the opening hours are limited. The small entrance fee goes towards the restoration and maintenance of the exhibits. There is a small gift shop on site. This is interesting for people of all ages, especially if you have a interest in history and transport.

Historic Richmond - wow! This convict built town is steeped in history and beauty. It is a scenic 40min drive from Hobart past wineries and gourmet food specialties. The Richmond Bridge is famous and the perfect backdrop for a picnic. There is plenty to explore here and well worth the drive (which you can make it into a entire day trip from Hobart if you stopped along the way to explore).

A nice park in the Geelong CBD. Historically, it has housed the Christmas Eve Carols in the Park, but generally speaking it is a nice place for workers to enjoy some fresh air on their lunch breaks. Currently (Jan 2018) the park is closed while renovations take place.

A fantastic place to visit and learn the history of the gaol. Used for over 100 years, there are plenty of stories hidden within the cells. Make sure you take a guided tour to make the most of your visit. Visit while you can, because there is a chance this site will be redeveloped in the future. There is limited opening hours as this is staffed by volunteers.

Make sure you stop by Narana on the way to Torquay. Featuring a art gallery, gift shop and outdoor walking trail - you can spend plenty of time soaking up the indigenous culture from the knowledgable staff. The cafe has some interesting choices to choose from too!
