Really nice city. Nice shopping area and when you want to escape the crowded city, definitely visit Devonport. i stayed mostly in the CBD but there is a park real close where you can enjoy a pick-nick or read a book.
Insider Tip:Visit Devonport to escape the city for a day. Go to Staples to eat together but order at different restaurants. Go to the harbor to have a nice view of the city skyline.
