Hobart Highlights

Welcome to Hobart, a city of yachts and spinnakers, gardens and galleries, sandstone cottages and stately Georgian homes, a city built on the pain and toil of yesteryear English convicts.

Your tour begins as you join an experienced and knowledgeable local driver guide, who will share tales of life in Hobart. Pass through Salamanca Place with its restored sandstone warehouses, now repurposed as cafes, galleries, and shops. Continue then through Battery Point, an area filled with historic quaint cottages, Georgian mansions, and cafes.

Proceed on through the suburb of South Hobart to the Cascade Gardens at the foot of the historic Cascade Brewery building. View the outside of this unique example of early architecture in a lovely garden setting before your next stop at the ruins of the Female Factory, a one-time prison for female convicts and mentioned in Bryce Courtenay's novel, "The Potato Factory."

Your journey returns to the city streets before heading across the Tasman Bridge, which spans the Derwent River, and stop at Rosny Park Lookout. Views of Hobart from the Eastern Shore with Mount Wellington as a backdrop make for a great photo opportunity. The next stop will allow you free time to explore the exquisite Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, before returning to the Hobart waterfront and your ship.

Excellent in every way. Our guide was extremely familiar with the area and showed so many interesting places, explaining the history behind each place and cracking many jokes along the way. We were completely entertained. As a result, we came home with a special love for Hobart and its beautiful sandstone buildings and its history.
