The cheapest realistic option unless you could find a sail boat coming down would be to fly. You can sometimes pick up very cheap flights on Jetstar or Virginblue, but usually you'd need to book more than a month in advance to get a real bargain. If you booked now for the 25th Feb, you could get a flight on Jetstar at 17:00 in Sydney arriving in Hobart at 18:55 for $99AUD. I wouldn't hold of booking much longer, because you'll be paying a hell of a lot more within days. That price is a little more expensive than you can sometimes get flights for but is still pretty good especially given that it's only a bit over a month away.

Check out or

You can get a flight Sydney-Melbourne and Melbourne-Hobart on Virginblue on the 25th Feb also for $99 but that leaves at 6.15am and arrives at 9.35am. That would probably be a better time to arrive in Hobart meaning that you'd basically have a full extra day here, but it would be a very early start and mean changing flights in Melbourne instead of going to Hobart direct from Sydney. I wouldn't hold off booking either one of the flights any longer, because all the flights apart from that are more expensive and they only keep going up the longer you leave it.

Have a great trip.
