Discover the hidden gems of Hobart.
Depart the pier and travel via Hobart's northern suburbs to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Enjoy free time to wander around at your own pace as you observe and interact with the animals. Here you will find koalas, Tasmanian devils and wombats, kangaroos, wallabies and more. Next, visit the historic Shene Estate. From the moment you enter the carriageway leading to Shene you are taken back in time. Come and explore the heritage component of a still working 4500-Acre Black Angus cattle and sheep farm whose colourful past has direct links with King George III, Governor Lachlan Macquarie and World Heritage Sites before enjoying refreshments of sandwiches, homemade cakes and tea. Re-board the motorcoach and continue on to historic Richmond. You'll have free time on your own to explore the historic old jail and many of the well-preserved buildings that have been converted into shops, galleries, tearooms and bed-and-breakfast lodgings. End your day discovering the hidden gems of Hobart with a local Vineyard, for wine-tasting at the cellar door followed by a stop at Rosny Point Lookout capturing panoramic view of Hobart and Mt. Wellington before returning to the pier.
